Default Re: SRAM front drum brake hub

Yeah it's one of those "Huh.....quick second look" ! things I'm designing into my build
to give it it's own uniqueness. I mean, how often do you see a rear wheel in the front forks
rigged to actually work ? The front forks will be a dual fork springer system as well. The head
lamp I've designed will give the whole front of the bike it's own "wow power".

So it leaves me scavanging the junk piles and eBay hunting for vintage eye candy to build with.

I'm beginning to think there could be a good business in building replica's of some of these vintage
components. Frames, springer forks (I can think of about 5 patterns), headlamps, horns, and other
things that simply don't exist in "new" form.
