General Information
according to a Weinmann flyer from 1977-11:
"Junior Hooded Racing Lever for mushroom end cable"
part #157  7/8" (2,38mm) clamp
part #158  15/16" (2,22mm) clamp
extension lever version: part #157/ resp. #158/1690

Kids/Junior brake lever with a very interesting end cable socket and pretty short (3-adult-finger) levers...reminds me somehow of the 80's BMX levers.
Not sure if the white hoods are genuine Weinmann...

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.
