    if it's from JJ that you're thinkin' 'bout, it's probably mine...

    39mm forks, shaved...
    brake stay welded to tube...
    one-off super narrow trees...
    lowers formed around the drums...
    inner part of the lower machined after welding...
    LOTS of f'ing work...
    LOTS.

    even more than it looks. huge pain in the ass.
    and no, it doesn't stop for shit.
    i dig it, though.

    my daily, '67 XLH skinny bike...

    Thank you for sharing, that's what I was looking for !!

    What a fucking work !! It looks great

    then you must weld aluminium if i'm not wrong... (or is it some kind of alloy foundery?) Don't think I can do such thing, I don't have the skills...
    I'm looking for a more simple solution, but yours is great !!
    Is it strong enough to hold the wheel?
    Sorry to hear that it doesn't stop shit, I was hoping to improve my brakes at the same time as the look...

    So far on my 35mm I reversed left/right fork in order to have the bracket in the same side as the cable-pivot, didn't post pictures yet 'cause I'm damn slow and still hitching my head on centering the wheel and fab' the bracket...

    yes, there was welding involved... and machining... and yes, it's quite strong.

    it stops OK, just nothing compared to 'modern' brakes... keeping in mind it's got 40 year old tires on it, and drums, it does ok. the sportster drums sucked when the bikes were new, in comparison to the competition.
    it does stop better than my other sportster; an all-original XLCH... & the 39mm forks are GREAT compared to the old 33.4mm things as far as performance goes.

    the current shoes are properly arced to the drum, and its got new linings. it's about as good as a sportster drum could get without converting to twin leading shoe... which i'll eventually be doing.

    Hey Dhallilama, what have you done for the cable attachment?
    Did you drill a hole in that piece you welded or did you added another bracket?
    Can't see it on the pictures 'cause it's not final on it...

    there is a hole drilled in the piece welded to the fork. drilled it once it was all assembled and back on the bike
