Hi Tony
The mystery missing component is the infamous balance box. This had a single cable going in from the handlebar brake lever and a Bowden cable wire looped over an internal pulley that rode up and down inside. The cable’s two outlets then went to the brake arms on the front brake plates.
It was not considered very efficient and many owners removed them and fitted twin pull brake levers instead as on Brum Scotts.
