General Information
from American Cycle Systems, Inc. of Monrovia, CA ( "ACS bought some tooling from auction when Mafac went bust sometime in the 80’s. Mountain bikes & cantilever brakes were coming into fashion, so we offered them on a horse shoe mount that could attach to standard side pull brake mounts. Murray and Roadmaster built many bikes with them, as it was cheaper than frame mounted canti’s at the time. The tooling and inventory are long gone."
