175X2 Airhearts were used on the front of my Bobsy (clone) and my Quasar back
in the day. Airheart 175X1s were used in back. Airhearts were used a lot for
circle track midget cars. I found replacement rebuild kits and replacement
pads (front) and pucks (rear) from circle track racing suppliers. Later, I had
White Post restorations re-line the worn-out bores in the calipers. They never
leaked afterwards. You may be able to find complete brakes from circle track
suppliers. I’ve been away from racing for some years, but check Speedway
motors and try to talk to circle track midget guys for possible sources.
Good luck with your racing,
Mike (Myron) Boyajian

Guys, this last winter I was seriously thinking about buying Jeff McKay's
beautiful SR3, but ended up getting a Beach Mk4b instead. The Beach was NOT
the smart buy as condition was no where near as good as Jeff's well priced
priced SR3. Had I twice as much $, I would have bought both ;-)
I'm hoping you guys will take mercy on me for not buying Jeff's car, and give
me some leads on brake calipers.
The Beach used Airheart brake calipers back in the day, like Bobsy's and
other American sports racers in the 60's and early 70's. Unfortunately, my
Beach showed up with Wilwoods on the rear, even though the FS photos all
showed Airhearts 175x2 calipers.
So, I am seeking a pair of 175x2 (4 pads per caliper) for this Beach.
Thank you for any leads.
