Dan, this is from WIKI When I looked at the brake levers they had in their photos (the UK site where they were discussing the roller brakes and dynamo hub, the hand brakes looked about like any other except for the fact they stood out further from the handlebar so the lever could swing further in it's sweep) many of the supply sites in the USA have brake lever assemblies that are about the same. I think the difference is in the Drum having a cam which presses the shoes into the swept area of the drum and the friction would tend to keep the contact whereas the rim serves much like a disk rotor where the pads press against it. That could make some difference but I don't know from my experience. I've been in that LongJohn org site a few times. I think I saw some old type handle grips I liked there. (torpedo's) On that Roadster bike, it looks a lot like the Dutch bikes. Here it is after editing it some and hopefully you'll be able to see it better below. Some of these web sites seem to make their photos so dark you can't see them or cammo them against backgrounds that makes it nearly hopeless to have a clear view of what you're looking at.
