Does anyone remember a post or have information on how to move the brake handle to the rear for a speedster? I saw it and a diagram somewhere but didn't remember where. It took two brake units and one was cut and used with a rod. Thanks for any info.

Dennis, thanks that post was very good with moving the handle to the left and outside. The one I need is you move the handle to the rear and run a short rod up to the original position using two units to make one. It just brings the handle back where it can be reached, with the modification it also extends it outside of the car. Thanks

Nice job Gary. Now can you show me how to do this for reverse on a speedster I'd be loving it.

Vol. I of the Tinkering Tips books has a drawing for the lever relocation. Problem is the drawing is reversed.

Richard, I installed the extension for the brake pedal that the vendors carry. Really helps.
Gary
