4076-30 Brake Shaft Right Lever and 4077-30 Brake Shaft Left Lever are installed on opposed ends of the chassis rear brake cross shaft 4075-30 (1930 only) and 4075-31 (1931-36) of 1930-36 VLs.

The major issue rigid frame machines experience with mechanical rear brakes is the extensive travel from point of origin to point of engagement. Proper response is compromised by lost motion. The VL has 3 points of loss between the foot brake pedal and 4076-30 brake lever, then 4 more points between 4077-30 and brake shoe contact with the drum ... and then there is the issue of the cross shaft and its bushings, making 9 points of diminishing effort to stop the beast. HD possibly designed the bellcranks as sacrificial parts, as there are few of quality to be found, all are extensively wallowed to oval shapes (almost a slot) where the brake rods attach.

Replicant Metals had both cross shaft brake levers meticulously copied. 4140 chromoloy was Blanchard surface ground to proper thickness, precision cut, properly formed and hardened to R37-39, then media blasted and Parkerized. We offer, imply and accept no liability, but are paying strict homage to the engineering of the Harley Davidson Motor Company in our quest of accuracy for your machine. Experience the response your machine is capable of when properly attuned parts are installed.

If your machine requires the best, you deserve Replicant Metals.
