I have one of these for sale.

It's been made from two levers. The actual lever on the dual cable had broken, so I removed the dual-nipple bit and installed it in the lever of the right-side housing, and installed that level in the dual housing. The levers are not the same as all the other normal Mafac levers I have, the curve is different and the cable-insertion access is larger, useful when you have to get two cables in there. As well, it was missing one of the chrome-plated ferrules, I have made another from a stainless bolt and it's a pretty good match.

20 GBP and I'll pay postage.

Really stupid (but genuine) question, but as I’m building my first tandem, what does this achieve / is a solution for?

For example. Right hand twin lever as above does front and rear canti brakes. Left brake lever does front drum brake.

2 brake levers = 3 brakes.

Jamie, I've sent two emails to the address you sent me - no reply; check your spam folder?
