good to hear from you
all the parts are getting to be large lumps now...lookin pretty good I reckon
my drums...I have the ones with spokes thru the drums.... one piece hub and drum, I think
be nice to save these wheels..the one as above has lost about 20% of its area due to a large score...and the other, just about rusted away... I,ll try turning this dumbbell...see what the material looks like...I,m sure its not real flash... I could just get a chunk of one inch steel plate and carve a liner out of that??
maybe the diesel place has a leftover locomotive cylinder sleeve about the right size???
maybe a trip to the junkyard would be a better idea...see if any old car has a brake drum that I could carve liner out of...not many drum brake cars left anymore either
I have a place that has a roll of old time brake lining material, he has done a matchless and 2 BSA,s for me...whatever it is, it is great stuff...all 3 bikes just bend the forks right back on a good pull...no issues at all with brakes...if I stay under 70 mph, under 40mph...wouldn't want much better
the rear brake...might make a brake plate and just use normal shoes...as making the cylindrical band and all bits looks like a real mission, I have enough original stuff for a original front brake
