No I don't have a build thread going yet. I really should tho as I have been watching other builds on this site for years now without posting my own. I somehow doubt I'm the only one. I'm fairly far along at this point. Need to do a seat, fenders, tuning and that'll be pretty close to done.JadusMotorcycleParts said:Cheers! How far along are you with your build? Do you have a build thread? Yeah, I will keep you posted on the 16" front wheel thing. A better brake would be awesome actually. Pretty pricy though I think?
I was wondering if it is possible to just improve the current brake by giving it a little mechanical or hydraulic help... Like have you seen hydraulic clutch conversions? Couldn't the same principle be applied to a drum brake? So you get a better/stronger action from the lever? Or even one of these things: http://www.kickstartershop.de/en/Mechanical-clutch-booster
I think we either live with the shitty front brake or swap it out for a better one. I doubt upgrading the stock one would be worth the money. Plus I like the look of a big drum with a small rim. I haven't looked into sizes or fit or anything yet though
