    Moving brake levers

    I just bought a used Fuji road bike and the brake levers are in an odd position for me. After looking at the brake levers for a few minutes I can't seem to figure out how to loosen them and move them into a better position. The bike in question is a 1984 Fuji Touring Series III. The brake levers currently do not have hoods on them.

    Thanks

    '84?
    Pull the lever down (ie, apply the brakes) and have a look inside the gap you just opened - I'm betting there'll be a big screw under there.

    Ahhhhhhhhhhh . . . "I see" said the blind man. Thanks for that tip. My break levers are in a much better place now.
