Yes, I am very happy to be part of this small club. 8)

I think mount with 1993 Shimano XT M734, that’s just perfect period.

On this bike, it takes a rocker for the brakes function.
The original had been lost. It does not matter, I found a drawing and a photo. But the original is poorly centered and the cable is fixed. I preferred to redo it centered, respecting the arms of levers and with a cable bearing as on the Pace rocker.
