Inching toward some kind if a plan for the rear brake. Since it's laying around, I'm starting with a Nissin rear brake that was bought at Mid-O last year. I machined a spacer to press into the brake mount and cut some extra meat off. I'll need to go with a bar stay, since the machined groove on this doesn't line up with the XL250 swing arm stay...









I may carve the bracket down more, but I want to see if I can use it for the license plate or something first.

Final decision on the light. After wasting half the day bending tube to make a custom mount to fit the CB750 front end, I ended up making a couple of simple brackets to utilize a CB360 mount...

I changed the back of the frame and the rear hoop. Brought the frame in and pushed it up more. I'm still trying to get good at bending pipe with heat too. Bent up this hoop, which still wrinkled a bit inside the corners. I need to clean up the seat, but this is close to being right...

That new hoop looks like it fits the profile and shape of the seat a lot better than the previous! Nice work.

Thing is looking mega.

I can't remember why but I had to make a 6mm thick spacer to fit Kawasaki EX500 rotor to Honda centre?

The EX bolts are 6mm longer than they need to be, but the shoulder is for the the EX disc not the center so it fits fine. I cut 6mm off the bolts and I'll run a nut on the inside of the 360 center. I'm not sure why you did the spacer, either. Did you run a front end that needed an offset?

I didn't get the bolts with rotor so used GSXR flanged Allen heads.
There was a different reason I made spacer, maybe to move disc away from spokes so I can use 4 pot calipers?

Won't you need to mill the cogs? does the brake side have a cushy :eek:
No cogs. I might be screwing up the terminology. If it does need a mill, I'll send it upstate.
