Hello folks does anyone have a hydraulic drum brake set up on a harley rigid frame out there? if so I sure would like some close up pics of the set up and how the hoses run and the anchor, hose brackets ect. that needs welding to run this brake before I paint the frame. Thanks for any kind of help!

Mine needed no welding to the backing plate.
Here is the shackle.

Here is how it looks mounted.

There is also a need to shorten the collar on the rear axle sleeve to alaign the chain. Notice the sleeve on the left.

I used the 1963 type brake and it required some frame surgery for the large lip on the backing plate. If you use the late 1958-1962 brakes no frame surgery is needed.

Thanks Chris that's neat I never thought about a set up that way. I am running the 58-62 plate. If you happen to have another anchor like that one and the shorter spacer you want to let loose of please let me know. Thanks for your time!

You can see what it looks like. It isn't hard to make.
