Thanks to Gerhard Ziesemann for sending me this information via email. In Gerhard's own words and photos:
The perch thread for the cable adjuster of my 2LS front brake plate had broken (an unfortunate accident during cleaning and regreasing the brake). The idea was to reuse the plate as a rear wheel brake because I considered it extremely valuable scrap.
My inspiration was the V7 Sport rear brake. A number of details needed to be modified:
These pics show the connector point, made of 5 mm stainless steel, bent to the shape of the brake plate, the eye welded to it, and fixed with 2 Allen head screws 6 mm. The hole is 10.2 mm to hold 10 mm fasteners, so the original stay arm can still be used - it fits perfectly.
Thethinnerbrake plate that gives room for the rear wheel hub, the diameter is ~ 65 mm.
The original actuation rod (upper) and the new rod (middle) with the turnbuckle (below). The right-hand thread end is screwed to the rod while the U-type end with the left- hand thread ist mounted to the lever by a 6 mm bolt, with nuts fixing both ends. Adjustment here.
