Hi chaps,

1.Cant find picture anywhere of how pivot pin for rear brake pedal mounts to frame(Im using standard frame to make a spitfire look a like)any body got a close up or a good verbal description?
2.Converting standard swinging arm(full width hub type) to single width hub set up, any body got any dimensions or good photo to show position I need to weld brake arm mount to.

Cheers Spyke

Spyke,

I may have mentioned this before. I have such pictures because I made the same modification. The problem is, thousands of pictures and I've changed computers at least once, so I can't find the pics. I will try further to locate them.

I also was  looking at the tyre and wondering about its make... The Dunlop Trials Universal is almost identical however they are not made any more. I have Trials Ensigns on my M21 which is exactly the same as the Dunlop Trials. Still obatainable and only costed £46. Available as 3.50 x 19 A10 size.
