    Fishhead Big Brakes

    http://www.fishheadbigbrakes.com/

    I’ve been putting newer brake systems (discs and calipers) on older bikes for a few years now. They are custom made, 1 at a time and can be made to order. At this present time, I am limited to the front ends that I have in stock. I have the front ends for the following motorcycles.
    75-77 GL 1000, 78-79 GL 1000, 74-76 XS 650, 77-83 XS 650, 79-83 CBX, 76 KZ 900 A-4.
    Other applications can be made on your supplied front end.
    Rear disc conversions also.

    Here are a few of the Fishhead Big Brake Kits I have made in the past.
    1976 XS 650 ISR Calipers , Brembo Discs


    My old front brakes on my Dunstall CB 750 (GL 1000 Front end, 310mm discs, 6 piston calipers)


    My new brake kit with 330mm discs instead

    I warned you. No kits exist, you can try finding an email address for him or emailing him through the board. He fell off the grid a couple of years ago.

    The kit is as close as his nearest drill press and bandsaw. Seriously. Those brackets aren't really difficult.
    Bike:
    Buell X1
    Honda S90 (box of parts)
    Honda CB750C (runs)
    The Others (mostly rolling wounded)

    My collar may be a little frayed, and maybe I need a shoeshine. But nobody\'s got a mortgage on my soul. I own it. Free and clear. -Phil Lovecraft

    no but the adapter for the rotor is a different story and you need that rotor for the calipers to work.
