General Information
These red anodized levers came on a 1965 Swiss made Tigra bike. They have a unique cable adjuster mechanism that I've never seen on Weinmann levers before. There are flats on the adjusting screws that fit into flats in the aluminum ferrules plus the ferrules have little tabs that fit into slots in the tops of the levers. I have a NOS set of Weinmann white rubber brake hood to fit these levers.

Founded in 1933 in the swiss Schaffhausen by Otto Weinmann, very close the border to Germany, over the years Weinmann became a very well reputated and one of the world leading lightweight bicyle parts builder, focused on brakes and later rims (in the 1960s the Weinmann colle rims became very famous). In the 1960s Weinmann delivered DiaCompe with brake parts and in the 1970's and 1980's this cooperation lasted in the production of Weinmann's top modell Carrera. At the date of the 40th company anniversary they had more than 700 employees and two affiliated companies in Singen, Germany (Weinmann & Co. KG) and Schoten, Belgium. After the swiss location has been closed in 1991 business activities were administrated from the German subsidiary in Singen.
