    Default Rear disk on panhead

    I see plenty of em out there, and the time has come to convert that rear drum on my panhead to a disk. 59 frame with knuckle rear section.
    Not much info from the google. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    What rear wheel do you have for mounting the disc?
    some pics and details would help others to help you with your brake conversion.

    Pick some photos ya like after choosing the wheel you want to use, and consider where ya prefer the caliper (or calipers if dual is desired) placed.

    Are you dead set on this? Can I ask your reasoning?

    Reasoning is relevant since weight transfer means the (foot operated so much more effective than inherently limited cable front drums) rear wheel braking will be limited by weight transfer and the stock drum gets it done (if the current drum is stock).

    Some do it because their stock parts are utterly worn out, others for looks, others for sprocket choice and even easier maintenance, and others to swap in a later wheel design they prefer.

    It will be easy to sell the leftovers to folks wanting that look.

    Makes sense. Thumbs up the sprocket choice for sure Farmall!
