    That's a great looking thumper, El Sid. It probably rides pretty good with the long wheelbase afforded by the low rider fork. How did you rig a front brake to the low rider fork?

    The front brake, at the moment is the only brake, has been modified, by using a longer mounting bolt and bushings. I haven't gotten the longer bolt yet so not sure how this will work out for definite. Im suspecting some flex will occur, but hoping stopping will be the end result. Still brainstorming about a rear brake. I have been outta town for the past 10 days. Heading home tonight. Excited to get back on this project. Ill keep ya posted here if your interested.

    I got the front brake rigged up. I cut a piece of handlebar off and worked into and extension from the bottom of the neck. Also need to buy 155mm reach brake calipers and some spacers so the front caliper would extend out over the wheel. 20141101_131344.jpg 1414282236170.jpg 20141101_131425.jpg 20141101_133713.jpg 20141101_134920.jpg 20141101_134929.jpg 20141101_140453.jpg
