Reworked the program slightly and adjusted the workpiece origin. Cut a new piece of stock on the fixture and polished the machining marks out:



Tried to mount the Brembo caliper to the bracket and found the brake pad hit it in two places: I miscalculated the minimum arc diameter allowable. So I machined two recesses on the backside where it would not be noticeable:



Final mockup:



You can see here where the brake pad just clears the bracket:



Overall I'm pretty happy with the design but I wish I had located the bolt hole for the anchor rod closer to the caliper bolt hole. I don't know how much leverage the caliper will put on the rod but the bracket would take too long to redesign and I had very little time left in my machining class and one last project I wanted to tackle...
