FS: NOS Cherry flat bar brake levers

SOLD

Not sure when these are from. 60s or 70s. NOS in the original bag. Made in Japan. Pretty standard alloy city brake levers with the nice anodized red dot.

$25 $18 shipped for the pair.

Theoretically, "Eye-Stabber" brake levers could not be installed after 1968.

One pair sold.

Turns out I have a second pair identical to the first, also NOS. So if anyone wants it, I still have one pair left.

Would those fit a Nitto albatross bar? I measured the grip area tubing at .855" or 21.7". Standard quill stem clamp size, but the bar tubing narrows away from the clamp area.

I converted my Univega Via Carisma from flat to riser to albatross bars. Currently has the original brake levers that had an integral mounting plate for SIS thumb shifters (Exage group). The shifters broke so the mounting plates are superfluous now are kinda klunky looking. I've switched to bar end shifters. Those Cherry brakes look a bit more svelte.

They're probably meant for a 22.2mm diameter bar but with this clamp style I would guess they would tighten down well on 21.7mm. Let me know if you're interested in trying them. I think I have a whole box of these somewhere or other...
