Hi again everyone i have fitted a 1969 BSA 8'' tls vertical pull front
wheel and brake to my clubman style 1961 A10 i have also purchased the
correct cable for the brake the problem being that the inner cable does
not reach the lever on the plate. There is an adjuster in the cable and
there is also an adjuster on handlebar control i have tried removing
the adjuster from the control but then the cable just pulls through i
would like to know if there is an adapter or part that i can buy that
will replace the adjuster and also stop the outer cable pulling through
as i am sure losing one adjuster would make the difference did the
bikes of this year not have adjusters on the control lever many thanks
frustrated Chris

I had a similar problem when using the TLS on my early A65. I hooked it up with the mid cable adjustment partway out then turned a small stepped brass fitting to sort out the lever end.

Without frequent roadside repairs there is no fun in riding!

If you want a cable specially made, try

J J Cables (J & P Engineering)
Hillfields Farm
Lighthorne
Warks
CV35 0BQ
01926 651470

They were very helpful to me and showed me the correct solder and how to solder on nipples securely. Since then I have always ordered brake and clutch cables without in-line adjusters and have finished them myself, relying on the lever adjusters only.
