Hello, on the internet I got through India a enfield cable, front brake which seems to work for my 1956. Has similar hookup but
as usual there is a issue. The barrel,ferule top locating , goes in the lever is smaller. Smaller than a bsa, triumph, matchless,ariel,
top barrel, I have levers from these to try. Is this a 90s early cable set up, I believe it is? The internet creates more problems than it solves!
Bike is getting done so front brake is becoming a big deal. DOES Anyone have a lever with a smaller diameter barrel, used, new
or etc

I've seen something similar, where some sort of little sleeve goes over the barrel, to make it the correct size for most levers.
Unfortunately, I don't recall where I saw it, or where they would be obtainable....
Anyone ?
