Abstract A locking device for a parking brake is provided which ensures that the operation of locking a parking brake lever and the operation of releasing the locking of the parking brake lever can be carried out in a single stage. The parking brake lever is pivotally supported on a mounting bracket mounted on a steering handle by a first support shaft, and a lever locking member is pivotally supported on the mounting bracket by a second support shaft, and biased by a torsion spring. When the parking brake lever is operated, an engage groove in the parking brake lever is brought into engagement with a locking pin, whereby the parking brake lever is locked at a brake operating position. When an operating portion of the lever locking member is urged in a direction against a resilient force of the torsion spring, the engagement of the engage groove and the locking pin with each other is released, whereby the parking brake lever is pulled by a Bowden cable and swung back to an original brake releasing position.
