    So i'm planning to install the brake caliper that came with the sidecar. It wasn't installed when i bought it but it does appear that it was installed at one point.

    My issue is that it appears to be missing something. I'm not sure what it is. Also can anyone identify the brake caliper?

    Here are the pictures of the caliper:

    Here is another part of the caliper. Not sure what it is:

    It looks like it's missing a piece. Can anyone tell me how to secure it. I circled the area that I believe is missing a piece.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks! Id love to get this on the sidecar. So will that piece you posted work for what i have? Id pads look good but i want to know if its something i can continue on getting.

    All i need to make it work is a double banjo bolt for my rear brakes and that piece you posted.

    Probably not. Was just showing reference to the part.

    I don't recognize the bracket. The caliper with the ribs is a old design of the early 80's, that Honda used. Looks like a caliper from a XR500.

    When you bought the rig, what did the PO tell you?

    No the PO had it taken of his/her bike at the shop and the shop was selling the sidecar. The bike that the sidecar was attached to was a 1981 Honda CB900 Custom.
