New brakes on old bike(2 posts)

Nashbar has long reach brakes and I am considering getting a set for my mid '80's bike. But after looking at the way the brakes on my new road bike look I wonder if these will fit on the old bike in terms of how they bolt on.

Anyone know?

Depends on if your old bike uses recessed or nutted type brake mounting. I would not know without a picture.
