 G'day WozzA,
                   while I always say these brakes are good I'm never satisfied. For a bit more power I have added 1" to the arm. A bit better.

If you are going to follow Musky, you will need 2 arms.
What.. have.. you.. done??
Is this a home made twin leader?
Must be a b@stard to adjust.
cheers.

What a good idea, I think I might well have a go at that myself as the A7 front brake is hopeless. Mine is a mixed up old girl with an Ariel front and later BSA QD rear one.

 I just found an old drop forged ring spanner and cut a 1" piece out and cut the arm to weld in new bit. Will be doing the rear next.
The other side is vented as well.
