Guys I noticed this during a Vintage car Rally in our town yesterday. The car owner said the maker of these has stopped making them due to legal reasons, were these a USA production?

Hi Kevin,

Not much to go on from the one picture, but that could be a Technicore kit made back in the '80s. I think that they were made in Massachusetts. My two cents worth, perhaps over valued. Bill

Yes, made in USA. But as said, no longer available.

They work well, and very hard to detect on a T.



This award winning 1911 runs these brakes, as safety item, no judging points are deducted.

Quite a few of those were sold.
The company owner was scared he would get sued, so he quit making them.
I have known folks that bought them and liked them.
The Metropolitan brakes were strictly a find them and do yourself deal. They happened to be the right size. I have a set for the front I bought at a swap meet.
RD Ricks ran Metropolitan brakes on the front of his speedster that latter became the OLD BRASS PICKUP.
