    You can combine these sleeves with your axle spacers into a one piece deal, probably the easiest way overall, if you have a lathe and some spacer stock. Just make the sleeve part a little shy in...

    My preferred solution to your problem, drum brake that needs a tab and forks that don't have one, was to shave the forks and weld on a tab. I've done this once to a 35 mm HD fork with a drum from a...
