Re: MB that'll run on beer
Another day of building in the books. Main accomplishments today: mounted motor only to realize I have a sprocket alignment issue, realized theres no way ill be able to build that tank on my own (any veteran fabricators wanna do some work for a fella??), and get my controls planned and layed out on the handlebars.... including the reason for this reply.
I fabbed up a dual pull brake lever from one I took from some old downturned bars, and modified them to fit exactly my needs. First I had to alter the lever itself to get enough action out of it, as its now mounted on straight bars. Second I modified it to actuate both front and back brakes together.
I created a little bracket with two holes for the two cable ends and attached it to the original lever mount. I then spliced the two cables with a crimper and I had myself a dual pull brake lever. As a fail safe, the back brake's cable runs straight thru the crimp and is not cut.
Thanks for lookin!
Slow and low, that is the tempo
