"A man must keep a little back shop where he can be himself without reserve. In solitude alone can he know true freedom."

The Brakes

My first attempt at brakes using go-kart drums and band proved to be completely useless.

Time to fix the crappy drum brakes. Had to machine up some adapter hubs in order to install disk brakes.

The caliper adapter plates took a lot of fiddling to make fit right. Disks and calipers are from the local bicycle shop.

This looks better. And it works better!
