In the last episode I had found a 21: wheel with mini drumbrake, I decided to glassbead and then laserscan the hub and brake to see how this will look and what modifications are necessary. First of all this is intended for a 15 mm axle whereas the Harley axle is 19 mm (3/4") so some beefing up will be necessary. Also the hub is intended for a narrower fork, so I will need to come up with a way to modify the brakestop tab, or just make my forks narrower. Finally I want to get rid of the speedo drive, so still some work to do here....

 

I have been working on new weld-on controls that will be available soon at www.dbbpshop.com and the first prototypes are being tested on this bike. All parts are CNC machined with "organic" shapes to look more like castings than billet parts, the pivots have bronze bearings, hardware is stainless and the tolerances are super tight.

 
 
 

Also I have been rewiring the bike from head to toe, only the bare essentials this time!
To be continued...
