I know that there are different types of caliper brakes, but does anyone have a drawing for a mounting plate? I just need a starting place. Thanks in advance for your help!

The caliper brakes on the bikes I've seen just bolt through the frame with a single bolt Some have a curved washer that matches the frames radius to keep them from rotating and apply more clamping pressure from the bolt than a flat washer would, but i haven't seen a mounting plate used.

There are calipers and there are calipers. I believe Thom is meaning...



.but biggestr means...



Emiel probably has a .stl file for a mount but not necessarily for a by-the-book Warrior. Otherwise work from the donor. To make a mounting plate I curve the plate around the caliper body with a flap disc in an angle grinder, then drill the holes through the caliper and through the steel. I drill undersize first so as not to damage the threads then drill them full size when I can remove the caliper from the steel. The rest is simply trimming the steel to fit the steering arm. Many people start in cardboard then transfer to steel.
