Front brake cable anchor done.
Now the cable stays where it belongs in relation to the operating lever. Do the final adjustment and I'm on the road again.

Not sure why the difference in colors. Both shots are of the same bracket painted semi flat black. The picture of the bracket on the bike is after a light weathering with a piece of wet or dry sandpaper. First photo is with natural light, bracket on bike is with a flash.
