AMF Cables

AMF brake arms

1978-83 AMF Roadmaster mopeds have special brake cables. All models, 110, 115, 120, 125, 130, 140, 141 have the same controls and hand brake levers. At the upper end the black plastic hand lever is a unique American design that requires a special cable end. The original end piece looks like a “T” but the replacement is just the top part of the “T”, made from a Ø3.9 x 7.2 mm brass cable end E5f, ground shorter to Ø3.9 x 5.9 mm.

On all models the lower end of the cable has no soldered-on cable end. The cable is the same but the piece that attaches it to the brake arm has two types. Models 110 and 115 have Hercules-Sachs type special clevis clamps (right in photo) on both front and rear. Models 120, 125, 130, 140, 141 have clevis clamp on front, and Grimeca pinch bolt (left in photo) on rear.
