Looking for anyone who's played with the brake pedal for a Matchless G50 or AJS 7R. The brake pedal has an interesting cable-pull stop that appears to go through the pedal's tube and pinned or circliped in place. I'm wondering why the pin or circlip, and not just welded? It's a lot of extra work when the stop seems to be slotted on the backside. Maybe so you can fit a variety of cable ends? Different lengths for the cleanest cable run?

I'd like to make something similar, but don't quite understand the reasoning behind the extra part(s).
