Default Here is a question.

Alright, so back to my springer. Got this springer for a good deal. I plan on running it on my Triumph. I want to run a front brake since I've heard Triumph rear drum brakes suck. I've seen disk brakes on wishbone style springer but if you notice this is a straight leg style. Anyone know a set up I can run in such a narrow space?

I think one type are Honda xl wheels with the mini drums. The only thing most of them are 5/8" axel and your springer is probobly a 3/4" axel? I was talking with someone about this and we thought of using a bushing to make up the difference in axel size so you can just use the wheel/ axel as is and not have to mess with bearings and stuff. Then you just need a tab to keep the drum in place. Alot of the wheel are sold on ebay with brake cables with them.

Thanks lilbill and Loffer, If I go with the drum in the front too that will keep it more 70's as well. Hmmm I wonder if the Triumph front drum brake will fit?

Hallcraft Mini drum, or spool drum. That was the ticket back in the day, I guess. I have got one for sale. It is missing the internals, but is in pretty good shape.

Even a Hallcraft singel and dual disc front wheel will fit that Jammer narrow springer..
The setups I've seen at swapmeets are usually beaten up pretty bad..

Dr.Benway post is the way to go,for a disc set up I think that setup runs about 250-275$.I also wanted to run drums so I ended up with this. It's a 68-70 suzuki 21"wheel with a 2LS drum. It is 5" wide at the axle
holes and fits between the 5" wide Finch springer rockers

Yeah right Lucky59 I guess I should have mentioned this is kinda a budget build. Plus in this economy not many folks can afford 1500 bucks for a brake.

Me neither and probably wouldn't if I could, more of a FYI thing. If you already have a good hub and wheel to use adapting a disc to it would probably be cheapest way to go. I like big brakes myself, but some of this looks interesting if you just want something to help scrub off a little speed. I was looking at the last disc, but don't know the diameter and wouldn't use it if it weren't stainless. I thought someone was still making a Hallcraft style mini brake, but that would be big bucks too?

I just realized from your collection of parts in the pic you want to build something period correct? Well, I was around in the late 60s when the first disc brakes came out and no one liked the looks of them at all, took a long time for anyone to come around to them. There were a few people selling small mechanical discs, more of hill holder thing I think at the time. Triumph people would rather be shot than put Asian parts on their bikes back then, not to mention the 36 spoke hole thing/problem. As I recall it was a small Hallcraft brake or nothing on a Triumph chopper till at least 1975.
