Hello ! :-)
i've seen all the pics !!!! :shock:
really-really nice work ! i love your scoot !

i've seen a pic especially : a pic shooten in a book about the front brake from Paughco :

i've had a problem with it on my last OD-Green scoot : i've first bought and installed this item , and suddenly realized that this WAS NOT the good part .
the caliper was NOT at the exact place on the disc .

so i changed for an H-D OEM part and all was correct .

did you get the same problem with this PaughCo part ? ( used on the same springfork than me )

can you explain WHY the PaughCo part is SO different and no-correct like this ?

anyway ( coz now , all is XXL-Fine )
your scoot is really beautyful ! :D

Milwaukee Bell,Thanks so much for the complements, your work has been an inspiration to me and was one of the reasons I started building bikes again.In reference to the front brake I used the caliper mount off of a full dresser that utilized the the modern springer where the caliper was mounted on the left side of the bike.I had to modify the caliper to obtain clearance using Paugho rockers.Here is a link to full sized copy of my caliper that may be of some help to you.I specifically used this particular caliper because it mounted on the left side of the the springer just as the original drum brake did, but the Paugho caliper which mounts on the right side might be easier.Again Thanks. :D :D :D ... aler61.jpg ... ealer6.jpg
