Since the end of last year, I'm the proud owner of a Tiger super six.

In a previous life, she looked like this:



When I bought her, it was more like this:



After grinding the frame, she got a new paint job and Inox floor panels:

Trouble is the Sierra micro switch normally breaks off where the wire connection is and you have to use a 2 pack glue to hold it in place.

It might be worth looking at one of the after market units or even giving Tiger Racing a call as the sierra hand brakes are like gold dust in good working order.

Don't bother messing about and just buy a microswitch with a lever, fix it in the appropriate position on the handbrake and bend the lever to adjust as necessary.

Something like http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/low-cost-standard-microswitch-with-lever-gw72p will do - I know you can get them cheaper elsewhere, but Maplins are usually "local", so easy to get individual components from.  Don't foget to get a couple of suitable screws and nuts for mounting it as well as they're quite a small diameter.
