This is a complete brake rod assembly to fit an early Douglas 2 3/4hp model of early  type.  It consists of Douglas modelled square brake clevis/brake rod, two locknuts, square headed brake pedal/clevis bolt, washer locknut - CNC manufactured in stainless steel from an original Douglas pattern.  Overall length of brake rod with clevis is approximately 490mm (but other length may be possible on request).

I copied this bolt and brake rod/clevis assembly from an original assembly from a very rusty but original early Douglas front brake assembly - which I am almost certain was of the type of assembly fitted to the 1910-1912 models - to the front downtube.  I have seen a very similar assembly and brake pedal fitted to period photos of this model - where it was not uncommon to have a two sets of footrests, the normal set just in front of the two speed countershaft, and another forward positioned assembly mounted at the base of the front down tube.  

The clevis is of the same profile as the original and comes attached to a 1/4" diameter stainless steel brake rod with 1/4 BSC thread at the opposite end, exactly of the same length and thread length as the original.  The stainless steel brake pin with distinctive square head is the same 1/4 BSC thread bolt as item 0687.

Finally the brake rod and clevis have been polished - if we say so ourselves they look really nice.  All CNC machined in stainless steel.

Note: I am aware Douglas brake rods for this model were made in numerous configurations over the lifespan of the model.  Let me know if you require a different brake rod length or configuration, I can quote for different lengths or options
