I think NOT. The W/NG uses the fulcrum adjuster and will interchange with the aluminium version which I think were std on the early ones anyhow. Nev

Bit of a discussion(+photos) on W/NG brake shoes on a thread started by Luis from Argentina a while back:
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=8065

(Luis - of course - ended up by making some! Haven't heard from him for a while, hope he's OK)

Ah, yes, ofcourse I should have known...
Oh well, they where not expensive :)
I mistook them at first (from a picture) for front wheel WNG because that one has no fullcrum adj.
I think Peter has stock of 7" alloy shoes, I bought a set last year from him.

thanks Nev & Simon .

Some of the alloy cast ones lose the steel wear strip on the face the cam runs on. It's not always obvious. Nev
