    Has anyone come up with a working rear disk brake engine drive sprocket combination ? Putting a disk brake caliber on the sprocket ? I know I saw something about that somewhere...

    I want to put the caliber on the sprocket itself. I don`t want a sprocket & disk. I`m talk`N use the sprocket to drive the bike & slow it with the caliber... on a coaster brake rear wheel. The mountians I ride in are kinda steep, I need ALL the brakes I can get !

    Custom m/c builders (Rook) are doin' it. And your chain if properly maintained does not drip and any splatter should go outward when it spins. So unless you sray oil on your chain w/ it mounted you should be ok. Am I the only person who thinks my coaster rear is fine? Granted I want a front brake and I'm goin' w/ Sturmey Drum.:eek:

    I have seen this done on go-carts. The caliper was a bit beefier than the typical bicycle ones. I thought it was a very elegant and simple solution. I think the only way to do it will require welding your mount to the frame so it probably won't be a modification just anyone can do.

    They talk about doing just that on this page DIY Go Karts

    I've seen this in the motorcycle mags. Seems like a good idea. I'd love to see how it works.

    Ski High, do you like this Husky front wheel with drum brake? Will this wheel fit my original Schwinn spring fork? Thanks!

    I have not found the time to braze the caliper brackets on the bicycle frame yet , but am thinking there may be a problem with the chain lubrication getting into the brake caliper .

    I had a Kikker Napa mini chopper that had this set up, sprocket also acted as the brake disc

    I had no issues with oil splatter
