Default Re: Black Lightning Build

I have still been feeling a bit under the weather, but I did manage to do a bit more to the bike. I installed the pipe and set up the brakes. This bike is not set up for caliper type brakes and I bout an adapter to convert it to caliper style. I thought these would be way better for stopping power. The main obstacle I had to overcome was that the frame does not have a shroud holder/stopper before the brake line gets to the triangle mount for the calipers. I solved this by using the engine mount as the thread point and I used a large washer and a drilled penny as the stopper. The drilled penny hole is only large enough for the cable to pass and not the shroud thus I have my shroud stopper as seen in the photos Ghetto engineering
