Hello Luis,
see the picture, this is how it should look, (more or less) but the brake lever in this picture is to long.
It should be half this lenght.
The brake rod runs inside the rear stand, yes, very litlle space but it does....
The anchor bar has a small kink in it to clear the frametube.

the plate is fitted incorrectly anyway, difficult to see if the original anchor mount is still extant, we know the front brake plate is incorrect for the W/ng I guess things are as they were long way to South America. kind regards

Luis,
It's difficult to see if this is a Ariel brake plate, it could be something else.
Now the wheelspindle can not be taken much more backwards to tension the chain as the anchor is in the way.
If you turn the brakeplate clockwise towards the position it should be, the brakearm will be below the wheelspindle where it should be.
I think the brakearm itself is from a later model frontbrake, but if it works o.k. then use it.
I see that the rear stand has it's spring on this side, Ariels have it on the other side, the spring abutment on the frame is a later addition.

Thanks for the photos and comments!

My motorcycle has modifications that I want to change and that I have everything again as it is originally.

I'm going to remove the rear wheel and see what type of brake plate this motorcycle has installed

The front wheel will have its original brake plate and I will need the length between centers that shows the attached drawing (see A and B measurements)

Hello Luis, If you have(have found) the correct front brake plate and the correct front brake lever you can deduct the lenght of the front bake anchor by having the frontbrake rod parallel to the fork front tube.
The (original) front brake lever on the brakeplate has it's swivel pointing inwards so the front brake rod runs inside the mudguard stay wich is made from a flat 'V' shaped strip.

just looked at the other pictures and I think the front hub is a original W/NG item but the brakeplate is not original .
