you may just decide that good brakes aren't important someday, and keep it for then ;)

I know disk would be better, but I'm thinking the big 2LS titan drum will stop a 200lb motorcycle that makes 17 h.p. just fine.

That's way too much brake for this bike.... I'd be looking at a nice small CB175 brake (or similar) with decent linings to get closer to the No Brakes look but still being safe to ride.

I have been going back and forth on the same thing. The titan front drum/ r5 rear drum came about for 2 reasons. 1 reason is that I have them and 2 is that I know that I can lace them with off the shelf parts. The spoke circle on an r5/rd350 rear hub is identical to the spoke circle of the titan front hub. So.. you can lace an 18 to a titan drum with stock rear rd350/xs650 rear spokes, and or you can lace a 19 to an rd350 rear hub with stock titan front spokes.

That said, I do think I have a set of kawi ke100 wheels laying around.. I may be able to lace 19's to those as they have tiny brake drums, im just afrail that they are TOO TINY

Guess who's stopping a CB750 chopper with DR350 brakes? LOL

Well, when your right your right. I'm also now seriously thinking that if I'm going yo change up wheel hub combos, I might as well 21"s front and back to get closer to the right board track look

Yes!
Also you should use a riveted v belt for the drive!

I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

21's would be sweet.

There you go. Can you have a pedal start? I guess no clutch and push/bump would be just as good.

Well as it were, I have a pair of 23 in xl500s front wheels heading this way for the project. It needed to be done. They will be a much more proper look for a board track replica than wide 18's or 19's. They are a bit tough to find rubber for, but im guessing that even if I have to pay a bit of a premium for tires, ill likely never wear them out.

Nope, it'll have a cvt clutch setup, so power can only be transferred from the engine to the wheels, but not in reverse.
