    Default Help IDing Performance Machine Caliper

    I stumbled upon this Performance Machine caliper, and I'm having a hard time identifying it. It looks like it's a rear caliper for an early sportster? I looked up the part number (0052-2503), and there wasn't really much information I could find other than it's a "universal" caliper. I was hoping to rig this up to my shovelhead as a rear brake, but I'm not confident on how it'd properly mount into place.

    See the problem is the caliper I have has different bracket mounting points than the typical rear caliper I'm seeing around. The caliper I see mounted to most shovels has two mounting points on the bottom of the caliper. The caliper I have has mounting points on the top.

    Place caliper on disk, produce mount to suit. However I wouldn't use any uncommon caliper because if I need to replace it or get pads that's more hassle. The more standard, common parts you use the less future hassle you invite. The only reason to use it is the pretty PM logo on the side, and there are plenty more calipers with that. They're not special or sophisticated components.

    they do work pretty damn well though Farmall, I fitted one to the rear of my Magnum & it was the best rear calliper I have used other than the harley brembo I have on my Shovelhead..... if he has it already hemay as well use it, if he has an 11.5 inch disc with a 3/4'' axle I'm sure PM will have what he needs, if not make a template & get one laer cut for a few bucks.................
