Has anyone made brake levers like those on rod-brake bikes, except for normal rim brakes?
Basically, I mean one brake lever that extends to each end of he handlebar, or at minimum two brake levers that operate one brake.

not sure--they did make rod brake leavers to operate a drum cable---would be simple to use rod leavers for center pulls I think---sam

Some bikes fron The Netherlands use identicle looking levers that work a cable crank. The only reason rod brake bikes have them, of course, is because they actuate the with cam that pulls on the rod. I have several Raleighs like this. They look great.

Thanks for the help, I was thinking of putting it on a bike with a coaster brake, I don't really like only have that, and the look and function of the rod brake levers would match perfectly.
