Stainless Steel rear brake pedal pivot bolt and nut to fit SOHC M30/M40 (i.e. pre-Featherbed Manx type) for Rigid and Gardengate framed models. This is the pivot bolt that screws into the frame from which the rear brake pedal pivotss. If your brake pedal currently flops about, there is a good chance it is this pin that is worn
It is worth noting that there have been quite a few variations on this brake pivot bolt over the years, but this is type that was fitted to most racing models on rigid and Gardengate models - i.e. M30/M40 (magnesium crankcase) and SOHC Manx type (pre-Featherbed) racing models. If you are not sure if this is the correct pin for your frame/brake pedal, see below (and the accompanying photograph of a Gardengate Manx brake pedal to compare to yours - note most Manx brake pedals had horizontal grooves on the brake pedal foot pad, while roadgoing models normally had criss-cross hatching).
This M30/Gardengate Manx type pivot bolt s distinguishable by two features:
- The thread that screws into the frame is 7/16" x 20 tpi BSC (not 1/2" BSC as on OHV/SV models)
- The length of the shaft is 0.885", which should be the width of hole on your brake pedal. If your brake pedal is longer in the shaft hole (i.e. 1.00" or one inch) then instead see item 0653 as that is an International type brake pedal.
- As a final point: if you are not sure what the normal M30/Manx brake pedal pivot bolt frame fixing looked like, attached is a picture of the brake pin casting on my 1949 Gardengate Manx frame (in a fetching shade of green paint)
These brake pedals are CNC machined in-house and if I say so myself are quite nice! As well as not rusting, the stainless Hex will also improve the look in this area.
They also come fitted with washer and stainless steel retaining nut. At time of this listing being written (April 2017) we are supplying the pin with a 5/16" BSC Nyloc Nut, but as I am unable to obtain these any longer, once current stocks are gone we will supply with an in-house made extra depth stainless 5/16" Nut
