Thanks to Ralf Brinkmann and Charlie Mullendore of Antietam Classic Cycle for providing some of this information on the Yahoo! Loopframe_Guzzi news group.

The rear brake rod/spindle/shaft used on footboard equipped models (MG# 13675440) is relatively rare and somewhat difficult to source. Cycle Garden now makes reproductions. As an alternative, the commonly available rear brake rod/spindle/shaft from foot peg equipped models (MG# 12675405) can be used along with the appropriately sized lever from a Moto Guzzi V35 - V50 model (MG# 19256900 or MG# 19256920). This lever replaces the original lever (MG# 12258501).
