    Again I was trying to be nice and you acted like an infant. Well now guess what.

    Your rear brake setup is ghetto. There are multiple things wrong with it, some that haven't even been mentioned.

    Instead of sitting here talking about it over and over, I suggested you try it, I'd say for 500 miles or so, until you figure out just exactly how ghetto the entire setup is.

    So, tell me, follower of the bully clique, what makes it ok for your buddies to go around making fun of, personally attacking, and harassing people for their build choices, then when one of you dicks get some guff, you sound like you lost your binky.

    Don't bother answering, you've joined them on my ignore list.

    Don't blame him for letting go of the bat and it hoofing a disabled child in the crowd upside the head; I'm sure he didn't mean it.... motorsports is dangerous, it says on the ticket...

    I've seen brake stays in compression and tension. The only rule of thumb I would apply (other than don't make it from cheesium alloy) is that an adjustable tie rod setup in tension is stacking load on an adjuster that is using up some of it's tensile strength clamping the thread so adjust accordingly.

    Up top or down low doesn't make a shit ton of difference so long as all of the components can cope with the stresses placed upon them.

    GOTCHA.

    Been a Sox fan since KC let Bo go in 91. Between him and the Big Hurt and I was hooked for life.

    Agree with p-dub. The configuration is less critical than the execution.

    The rear brake caliper on STOCK 70s classic Triumphs were "underslung" until '79, then they FINALLY went "overslung" to ease system bleeding.

    Keep it where it is.

    The comments about flat stock for the torque arm are entirely valid. Now, if it was longitudinally ribbed...

    Another case of tubing being better does not mean that flat bar is unacceptable and won't work. Sometimes the best way is not necessary or cost effective. Leave it at that. If my 1" wide bar were 1" thick there would be no argument. So at what thickness does the bar have to be until it fits into your recommendation. I wouldn't use 1/8" bar stock for this application, but I think what I have will do the job without ramifications

    Pipes came in and fit like a glove.




    I ordered the proper muffler clamps, but they sent me large coil clamps instead. They want me to send the wrong ones back. Why should the buyer eat shipping costs on the wrong part sent. This is one case where I say if you don't correct your mistake at no expense to me then you get negative feedback.

    Looks good. IMO the levers need to be black, but that's just being picky.

    I still have to coat the perches as well as the levers.
