That's your Colson with the front coaster brake, isn't it? I'm still thinking about that coaster brake on the front wheel. There must be a way to increase the mechanical advantage and make that thing work better. It would be such a cool thing. We'll call it "Bairdco's brake" and you'll be famous. Around here anyway. Look forward to your build.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
