I bought the bike a while back as my first project, one of the previous owners had already started work on it and I'd received it already half pulled apart. The issue I'm facing is that it came without a rear brake caliper, which would set me back about $415 AUD (a HUGE amount compared to what I bought the bike for). I'm wondering if there are any alternatives, is it worth paying that amount OR am I better off cutting my losses and selling the bike. Any suggestions would be really appreciated, Thanks

I just went and had a look at the 83 650E which is probably very similar. The rear caliper looks exactly like the front left. Maybe someone else can confirm. These appear on ebay from time to time from wreckers.

I've just gone and taken some measurements of my front caliper and it seems as though it would line up, so I might take that one off and try it on the rear just to confirm, and I'll keep an eye out for any spares. Really appreciate the suggestion
