Technical help from Rudge experts...
Sam E Radial is on hand to answer those nagging technical questions like "how does the brake coupling cable attach to the rear brake pedal on my 1937 Special?".
Coupling brakes first appeared on RW machines for the 1925 season and remained a feature on all road machines except the 1935 Tourist and Autocycle until production ceased in 1939. The method of attaching the cable to the brake pedal on your 1937 Special is shown in the picture. It is important to note that the Coupling cable stirrup 74238 MUST be fitted so that the slot faces downwards to prevent the stirrup accidentally becoming detached from the cable should the cable become slack. Now there's a thing!
