Re: Hello from Texas, from a fellow scooterist
Burnt Toast... I salvaged the brake calipers off another bike I had. They bolt up to the fender mounts with no problems. I don't remember exactly where I got the dual brake lever, but if you check with motorized bicycle kit sellers, or on the internet, you should find them. The Cranbrook is my first motorized bicycle build, and so far I'm happy with the outcome. I'd like to have springer front end, or mountain bike telescoping forks, but so far I don't see the need for them. Check out all the Cranbrooks that have been built, and they mention problems with fenders cracking and coming loose, and the rear hub brake lever being a problem. The fenders can be braced for safety, and on mine the rear hub was not a problem. I did enlarge the hole on the rear sprocket to fit the hub, but the brake lever clears fine. Have fun with your project.
