Default Re: Adding a Front Brake...advice, suggestions, please

I had the same problem with my springer fork set up . I cured it by using 2 of the three C-shaped rag plates, that came with the rear sprocket . And bolted one on each side directly where the shoe would bolt on . Using the center hole in each plate . Then bolted the shoe through one of the end holes of the plate . If you have extra C-plates with your kit you can do the same for free . All this does is extend the shoes down and forward enough to make contact with your rim . Here is a pic of the bike I did this too .
