Well got my elec and water back yesterday after 1 month, no Internet just satellite fone, so I got plenty to do.
Here is a new brake for 64 to 71's.its a new casting with entry and exit air scoops, still have to make the mesh screens for the front. Stainless levers, long one is 20mm longer for more leverage. Not for the bean counters but more for the cafe guys

Very nice Don - sort of "Tickle" with a Triumphesque scoop.

Well, I had a John Tickle brake and thought I would make one very similar using Commando shoes but that wasn't possible, the Tickle brake is very different and has its own shoe design.
I have a large stock of Commando shoes so I used the Commando casting as my base to work from.

As the owner of a Tickle brake that I brought with parts missing! I can confirm Don's information. Lol how I laughed when I discovered this!
That's really nice Don & practical & just clever.
