This was it a few week ago with the 16inch front n back wheels
Av sinse put a drum hub in the rear Harley rim.
Also gone up to 19" front with twin leading shoes.

Seany 27-02-2016 08:40 PM


Had to make space in frame for the rear pot. Was a tight fit.

Don't worry about him he would prefer it if it had a Virago motor in it

BikerGran 27-02-2016 09:16 PM

I think it's a big workshop heater

Have i said welcome to the newbie's

Some workshop

Seany 29-02-2016 07:32 PM

Good heater is that.
I had a home made pot belly wood burner beefier but I ran out of floor space.
Needed a wall mounted affair n this popped up for 100.

Friar Tuck 01-03-2016 06:59 AM

Heater? HEATER?

Why not Freeze like the rest of us!


Seany 02-03-2016 10:05 AM

Cos am n old man.
I work outside all the time Tarmacing.
On fukin Saddleworth Moore last night on the 62.
It's nice to work with some heat on yer back.

Seany 02-03-2016 06:53 PM







I wasn't sure how good the old drum brake was gunna be so av built a hydraulic "pull" ram to assist.

wiskers 02-03-2016 07:16 PM

From what i remember the old twin leading shoe brakes were pretty good especially if you fitted the Ferodo (spelin ) green linings if set up correctly, even the old single leading shoe full width were not bad and a dam sight more reliable than the bloody disc's of today

You just might be onto something with a hydraulic puller but i would worry that you may not get enough feel
But you won't know until you try and it looks easy enough to revert back to the original adjuster

Bloody lovely work mind Dai

Seany 02-03-2016 07:34 PM

Am gunna make another ram of similar size but with a lever on it.
It will be cable up to that.
Al mount it on the fork under the headlight mount somewhere.

Blimey Saddlworth Moor! That's a place!

I'm so glad I've retired and work(?) in a nice cosey(ish) man cave! Even though I haven't got the toys like you have! Not that I could use them even if I did! That's some workshop of yours matey!
