Thanks gentlemen. I got my eBay special rear brake-sprocket combo. I have to do a bit of machining to get it lined up, but no biggie there. We will see how she stops, but if it's not up to snuff, I'll put a brake up front too



This wood frame is gonna be a neat piece of wall art when all is said and done

It's good to have buddies with machine shops. Got the rear drum/sprocket machined. I had to add a few bolt holes as well as open up the center hole to fit the rim.








Still not sure on the frame. Had this old frame sitting around too, and I'm diggin the look


The aluminum frame like the wood mockup would be sweet, I just have a ton of projects.

Thanks man =) I don't know what it will actually look like in the end, but I hope it turns out neat one way or the other. The wood mockup is destined to be wall art im afraid, but if that ever changes, ill let ya know =)
