Dear Forum members,
For a restauration of a 4.5 rapide, we are looking for two rear brake cylinders. second hand, good condition if possible, as the ones in the pictures, (no new ones available).
If anyone by chance has a set arround would be highly appreciated.

Unfortunately I can’t help with parts, but it looks like you have a rod or cable operated braking system on your Rapide, in which case you will not have brake cylinders on your car. I might be wrong but the casting on the right hand side of your pictured brake backplate appears to be what is termed an “expander”, which I would think means the items you need are therefore the adjusters.

I have just had a quick look on ebay, is this the right one?bill18 February 2014 at 17:13 #50686
Similiar parts used on Rileys. Sometimes they are smaller sizes but worth while pursuing this avenue. I found the parts that I wanted (LG45) from a Riley specialist . Cant remember now exactly what parts or from whom but post again if you fail to find what you want.bill18 February 2014 at 18:24 #50687
