Does anyone make the bent/offset emergency brake handles like some of the speedsters have? I just don't have leg room and want it out of the way. Is this something I can do myself? Any and all ideas would be greatly appreciated. Frank
I bent mine cold using two big crescent wrenches. Don't get carried away, or the end of the handle will hit the footwell trim and rub a gouge into it when you put the handle full forward.
I bent an offset into the levers on both T's. I heated them with a cutting torch and bent them towards the passenger side, about 8 inches from the floor. Them did heated the four inches from the floor, and bent them so they stand straight up. I did the lever and the release link at the same time. After they cooled, I rubbed them with Scotchbrite and rattle-canned them black.
Some of these handles were slightly bent from the factory.
I moved mine back 12 inches and made a bracket on the outside of my speedster. Works great and is out of the way.
On my last speedster moved it back 7" and outboard 7" this can be adjusted many ways to fit your needs
And uses stock brake rods
If you look closely I heated and S shaped the handle
Bend it however like. Mine are bent to be about 2" from the door and thus making a bit more legroom.
Another set up.
I've "zee'd out" two of the levers on my T's like others. I used two Monkey wrenches/adjustable spanners to do the bending and I did it cold.
Worked good. I have a piece of tin on my footwell on the driver's side of my '18 so I'm good for now.
I cannot stand it if the lever is touching my leg!
I thought I had some nice pics with the monkey wrenches in place but no.
