Hi All,

I'm looking to see if anyone could take a picture of their brake release handle or provide some measurements of the height and width.. or maybe could take a picture with a ruler under it for reference.  Below is the billet one that is available.. not even sure if this is correct.

I have the depth from what was left of my broken handle

I'm looking to design and 3d print a replacement.  

Thanks

Stay safe

Chris

I have a 73 in the garage.  I can go take some shots if that handle is the same for all years.  i.e. if you have a different year you might need someone with a 71 or 72.

here you go.  Ruler and micrometer.  The length is just shy of 1 1/2 inches.  The micrometer has it as slightly less.  Also got the height and took a measurement midway down the curve of the handle.  

Let me know if you need anything else.

That is amazing! Close, but notice how the top frontal part is angled in? I have an NOS one that had the silver paint wear off before it was even installed. If I can find it, would you like me to send it to you to get an exact match. The cost would be 5 of the ones you produce, and a break on the price of the rest lollerz

Thanks.  If you have one that would be great. PM me if you locate it.  I wasn’t planning on selling, but would be glad to print one out for anyone who needs one.
