    I guess I should introduce myself. My name is Travis I live north of Dallas. I have been lurking for some time trying to figure out what I wanted to build. I decided on a whizzer. I bought a 2005 Whizzer the other day that I am in the process of redoing. I have torn the engine down and sent the cylinder, head, and clutch to Quenton to be modified. I intend of a custom frame eventually but for now I just want to get it up and going and reliable.
    The rear brakes on my bike were shot. I dont know if this has been done on a whizzer here, i couldn't find a thread on it. My thoughts were to remove the band break and turn the inner housing around and tap it for a disk brake. I will also secure the back side of it with nuts and lock tight on the bolts. I did just that today. I also built a mount for the Disc break caliper. I still have to paint the adapter and add the nuts and lock tight on the disc brake.
    I appreciate all input. I would like thoughts and opinions on this and I wanted to know if it will hold up.

    Thanks,
    Travis

    The Brake works great. It out performs the front quite easily.

    That's an excellent invention and adaptation of disk brake components onto a frame that was not designed for disk brakes.

    Seriously, that's a d.am.n excellent idea !!!

    I appreciate the kind words. It really worked quite well. If anyone needs a copy of the mount I made I can scan in a pdf of it that can be printed out to scale and make the cutting of it quite easy.

    The mount has been refined a bit to allow for wheel removal without removing the adapter also.

    Please send me a personal message with the PDF, or if you can place it directly into this thread, i'm sure it would be welcomed.
