Default Re: Brake upgrade for shift kit


Welcome back from your self-imposed hiatus / build upgrade on your Stretch!

Man this build is beautiful very interesting to see disc brake set up, as a Stretch builder myself I can say from experience stopping a Stretch cruiser is like trying to stop a runaway train! This disc brake upgrade is for sure to inspire other Stretch Cruiser Builders

Max if you like maybe you can start a new thread or just bring us all up to date on this build on and old thread from this build, I like to call it the ( Build Brake Down List), when you started this build, where you got it ie bike, motor, other parts & accessories. The Who, What, Where, When & How! In the new Stretch Cruiser & Chopper Lowrider forum!

Here's a similar Build Brake Down list from a fellow Stretch Cruiser builder & forum member:
