FS: Weinmann touring levers with extensions. These are nicely made. See:


The lever extensions are nice, solid pieces. These strike me as potentially a tasteful touch for a 70's mixte. If they were the rattle-trap low-end flexy-flier Dia Compes, I wouldn't have bothered the list. These are quality pieces.

If my eyes don't deceive me, there's a parking brake function -- what looks like a cable release is in fact the reverse -- it pins the lever more closed, and I deduce that it is intended to close the brake caliper onto the wheel, to keep the bike from rolling when it's leaning. I'll take a detail photo if asked.

$20 + 6
