 Right on man, I dig it, an oxy/fuel rig is the one type of welder I dont currently have. I just know that a braze weld has a much lower tensile strength than other forms. I really like the tray.

Got some goodies and made a little more progress.

Finally ordered my caliper, but in order to get the right clearance I need to build a spacer between the disk and hub. About 6mm is required to make the disk center in the caliper. The caliper does not float. I am going to machine down an old disk carrier I have laying around. Also got the master cylinder (11mm Brembo with a brake light switch) and measured up the line length I need.

Nice brake setup!  I am running a similar setup, but dual disk, on my KZs. I'm using the Brembo and Grimeca Lockheed replicas because they're cheaper but the original AP ones look so good with those fins.

Putting the wiring harness on now, will give it a final wrap after I get it running.
