Brake levers for single hand...
I am normally over at the C&V side of the bike forums and this week when I was visiting my LBS the owner showed me this fantastic vintage Nishiki from the late 70's, He had a request by the single handed owner to get the classic brake to work for him,
I was happy to help and fabricated this lovely vintage shimano 600 arabesque brake lever for him.
both cables in one lever, the shimano gum boot will go over it.
I was able to get a picture taken just before I delivered it to the shop,
this week he asked me to make a second lever based off of a diacompe randonneur pair for the clients other classic bicycle
Well I just thought if anyone has any special requests I would be happy to help!
I felt very rewarded making custom made parts for passionate cyclists.
My name is Michael, and I am a recovering bike addict, It has been 11 months since I purchased a bicycle for myself..

Lord help me!
