Show me one photo of a STOCK motorcycle that has the brake PUSHING on the brake reaction ARM. I grew up working on Japanese motorcycles in motorcycle shops.

The ONLY kind of brake that pushes on anything is the Harley Davidson style brake that has NO brake reaction arm but instead a TAB on the frame right next to the brake caliper.
NO ARM.

meat curtains was left off. always cracked me up. my sister played college field hockey, they had a drill where you dribble the ball between a team mate's legs. and the drill was called meat curtains. i watched practice one time and about rolled down the hill laughing when the team captain yelled out "ok, meat curtains!" and the girls all spread their legs.

i'm also a big fan of count flapula.

i'm not sure i understand how force is better or worse pushing or pulling in that app. i'd like for someone to break it down, if that is indeed a known fact.

...

Totally forgot to update here. I MOD @ • Index page so I don't always remember to get around to some of the other hang outs. So here is the progress we made. Well the progress Brad @ Gypsy made, I will take full credit for being a great shop monkey and holding my coffee / smoking my cigs while giving artistic input.

In the shop and up on the table right around 930ish, half a frame by 12.


Gutting the back end



Bye bye nasty fucking frame!




Looked crooked and all messed up

Shortened the brake peddle about 1.5" and cleaned up the bracket a bit.




Shortened the shift lever about 1.5" and added a new thicker toe peg


rear fender strut in place


bungs in place


bungholes


they are starting to look like alien antenna, I'll use different bolts when done, just using these for mock up


handy chain link for mock up purposes


slight dip in lower section of rear fender to clear the rear seat cross member nicely
