Jiri Horice in the Czech Republic sells very nice inverted levers that seem to be identical (!!) to those sold by Pete Rosenthal, but considerably cheaper, even including the postage.

In 1929 inverted levers were fitted, right up to 1934. The front brake cable goes through the handlebars at first, and then emerges down to the fork cross member, into a 7/16″ Cycle Thread adjuster, then a rod down to the lever on the brake plate. The actual fitting on that lever can vary, but the end of the lever is usually forked, and a trunnion fits into the fork. The rod goes through the trunnion and another adjuster (spring loaded), fits on the end of the rod. Johnsons Cables, in Banbury, can supply the rod/cable assembly.
