Question on GP backing plates

Post by nwarcade » Thu Jul 16, 2020 3:41 pm

Hi all,
Are there different backing plates for the 1st and 2nd series GPs? I found these on both the front and rear axles on a 1st series frame. If not GP, has anyone seen others like them? The have a more rounded profile than what I've seen in in the past.

IT looks like an M38 or M38A1 backing plate. Probably replaced in an attempt to "upgrade" the brakes.
