Title: A65 1963/1964/1965 full width back brake rods
Post by: JulianS on 18 December, 2017, 17:27:53
For the full width hub back brake 1963/1964/1965.

Can someone post  photos of the point where the short and long brake rods are joined by the little toggle plate, to include the bracket on the frame?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Julian
I have a couple of pics but am too old and incapable of getting them on the forum! If you could let me have an e-mail address I can send them.
Cheers,

Are these any good?

Better quality on request. Be quick though, bike coming to bits soon.

They do exist!

Some people donít realise this was a set up!

If you would like some measurements, I will be stripping the frame for blasting and repainting in the not so distant future. Well, when the engine had been decided on!

Just one dimension - is the long rod 5/16 diameter, same as the short front rod?

Thanks

I work away from home. I will be back home tomorrow night and taking the bottom end out of the bike on Saturday morning. Will measure it for you then!

Hope this is ok?
