Don, Its got no brake levers on the bars so its very obviously a foot pedal operated brake. Wonderful machine but I bet it rides like a dog. Had the misfortune to ride an ex 1920's Peugeot Tour de France bike. Terrible ride my estimation of these Tour riders went up a 1000's fold after my experience. They must have been real stars to ride dogs like these. I was lucky I was on good tarmac how they coped with the road surfaces of the day god only knows especially in the mountains.
