My LAZY mod.....
« on: February 13, 2018, 07:50:28 am »
This is what happens with all the winter down time and boredom sets in!

Got all the geometry figured out, a few pieces made, others on order. I think it should work, we'll see.

At the start, all you need is 2 hearts and a diamond....
Later, you want a club and a spade.

Seems like a lot of work to just avoid moving your foot from the highway peg to the regular peg and change gear!! then put it back on the highway peg!! It would not work on my bike as the forward engine mounting bolts that you are using to mount the linkage are already used for crash bar mounts and would foul with this linkage!! if you have the time go for it, but as stated, it seems a lot of work to just not move your foot!! What about the rear brake pedal on the other side?

Beauty of linked braking system  ::008::
As I get older, I am no longer surprised at what I know, I'm surprised at how much I don't know.

Well I did say my 'LAZY' mod, and that I'm bored with this winter weather, and I've made a lot of things most people wouldn't do if they can 'buy' it.
This is something I've always wanted to try and after I thought about it, found out a couple of other bikes you could do this similar mod to.

As far as the rear brake................what Dogdaze said!
