Keep it hooked up and in working order, Then, Don't use it. If a brake cable snaps or ya lose yer brakes for some reason you'll have SOMETHING for emergency back up. Coaster brakes beat dragging yer feet trying to stop before ya hit the intersection.

Yup, I have a pretty good setup on my front brakes, As long as I don't brake too hard on water, sand, ect. That's all I need. But its nice to know I have a backup if needed.

That engine mounting looks like it would be really useful for any situation where a secure mounting for a China Girl engine is needed. Does Bikeberry ship to other faraway countries like New Zealand?

All ya can do is email them and ask. if yer willing to pay shipping, why not. I never bought a mount for any of my OCC's, I used angle iron and steel pipe and made my own. Of course ya gotta be able to weld to do it that way.
