Brembos on a chopper

So I have a rigid frame with a 200mm rear tire and a narrow sportster front end with a 21" spoke wheel. Has anyone ran real Brembo calipers not the Harley type but the calipers found on Ducati and Aprilla sport bikes.

I'm wondering if these calipers are narrow enough to run on a narrow glide fork with a narrow glide wheel the fork tubes are 7" on center. I think I measured 2 3/16" of the caliper tab on the fork the spokes

I will try to make a clear picture for you with the measurement tape for reference so you can see the sizes and distances.
There were no issues with wide glide chopper.

But the repop springer is very narrow, but I was able to setup dual caliper front brake system , however the wheel is wide glide. In this setup I use two p 32 calipers

I made mine from 1/4 steel flat with a hand grinder. Pretty easy using carboard for measurements , positioning of the caliper etc. Once I roughed up the bracket, I marked the holes while holding the caliper on the rotor, not allowing it to bottom out. A wire tie of right width place on the bottom of the caliper slot will place it perfectly on the rotor.

Perhaps easier done with aluminum flat , like 3/8" vs 0.5" thick.

Here's front for springer. Has to have bushings . F08 caliper Grimeca/ Brembo



Here's dual caliper rear brake with the same calipers. Hangs from the 3/4 rear axel and has a long slot upfront to be held in place by a typical tab on the frame.

Here's how it works on wide glide front end. The tape is touching spokes. Looks like the caliper is ~3" thick". I was lucky: the 1/4" flat bracket perfectly centered them on the rotors. Was no need fo 3D mill work.

So I measured from the inside caliper mount tab to the wheel and it's 2 3/8"so the caliper won't work I may have to get some 39mm mid glide trees

Thanks John, I talked to FabKevin and he said he can make one he just needs to the caliper to get the mounting holes and measurements right
