Thanks, for sharing. But could you take about 15 steps back and give us a shot of the whole bike? Its really hard to see the end result as is, with only close ups. Looking forward to it!

Love that idea. Years ago I had the 73 M/C under the seat with cable going back to bars. Dinosaur setup compared to yours man. Love the tank, seat, paint, pinstripe design too.

Default Re: Reverse levers, remote master, disc brake

I've bleed the brakes, and there might be a small problem. The end of the lever is touching the twist grip body. I've not yet tested the brakes, but I'm a little concerned about cable travel.
Just in case I'm looking for possible solution, any idea?

I ran a similar setup from FabKevin on my triumph, it was always slightly spongy feeling, but stopped the bike fine.

A disc brake lever shouldnt need to travel that far.
Either it's not bled proper or the bore size of the MC aint right.

I've just finished building my bike I'm having a little problem starting it, because the engine was completely rebuild and needs some fine tuning.
I hope that the brake will worn in, when I start to drive.

You know how it is with freshly build bikes.

Here is a final result, I will make a new post with additional pictures
