They are like rocky mountain brakes, but a little different. Does anybody have any info? I goggled them and nothing comes up.
Never heard of them. Seems like now days, every one calls any outside accessory brake a Rocky Mountain, which obviously is incorrect.
i will pictures, tomorrow.

Seems to be one of the many accessory brakes including Bennett, Stronghold, Pikes Peak, Rockie Mountian, and AC. I see Pikes Peak brakes mentioned several times on this form but not a lot of details on them.
Are there any other aftermarket brakes being reproduced? I've heard about AC and Rocky Mountain.
Chaffin sold Bennett's a while back, but I think the guy who was making them died.
Correct, I talked to Chaffin's last week, they don't carry any Bennett's stuff any more, not even the pedal. He said they just don't get much call for the and the same is happening with the Rocky Mountain brake stuff, his perception is that most folks are going to the disc brakes and so the other systems just aren't moving any more.
My take on the slow-moving outside brakes is that if they were reasonably priced, they would sell the way they used to. There are lots of T'ers who hate the appearance of discs on T's. The Rockies are now about $700 - $800/set, and when you look at what you get for that money, it's a joke. For a little more, you can get the disc kit from TTP and have much better brakes. I think the Rock Mtn. Brake Co. is pricing itself out of business.
AC Brakes, last I heard, were 350 for a set. They don't come with linkage, but surely those can be made for less than 100 dollars. I've heard they aren't as good as Rocky Mountains due to surface area of the drums, but if you already have a small drum setup and want some extra braking ability they would give you the most bang for your buck.
Personally I'd rather have a reproduction period set of brakes than the disc setup, but I'm more interested in originality than keeping up with modern traffic.
