OK!,
I've had a knee replacement and I'm trying to take care of some small stuff I've ignored while living that healthy active life. When my riding friend died in 2009 I inherited a bunch of his airhead parts and pieces that were laying around the garage. Most of it I've been able to classify and get into useful hands, but this one has left me stumped. David had a R50 with a sidecar, a R75 and a 86 R80RT which I still own. What bike does this part belong to......... perhaps it's not even BMW? It appears to be a cable actuated brake peddle but seems to be left foot actuated. Give it a shot! I'm going to sell it if I can get it identified. it weight's 1.25 lbs, with the foot peg being bronze with a grease zert. There is a cable captive adjuster screw. The vertical black section is iron.

I've never seen anything like it. Baffling.

I can't seem to open the pics, but from the description could it be a sidecar brake? They are frequently rigged.

I'm left handed so left clicked on any picture, a box showed inviting me to "Open

I believe his sidecar was a Stieb...... I've kind of looked at images of them and don't see a brake on the car's left side.... but perhaps this was for the cycle riders use on the left side of the bike or for the passenger in the sidecar? Who should I be asking?

I shot the picture to an aficionado of all things ancient iron. Nothing that he can definitively identify. He did say it looked like a hydraulic brake pedal and maybe a cable operated brake light?
