I had a 13 inch wheel on my Goldwing outfit.
It had a drum brake with an electric brake installed.
Braking effect could be adjusted for road and load conditions. No hydraulics or pipes.
Very commom on trailers and caravans.
Worked really well; I'd do it again in a shot.

Side car brake

I have a Nissan 4 stud hub with a 15 inch wheel with a hydraulic disk brake on its own pedal, good for steering around left hand corners and helps with braking as I can brake side car & rear with one foot, am in Gladstone up north of you in SA

We make a hub from billet that runs a 4 bolt pattern on 4 inch with a modified Citreon GSA rear brake rotor (about 7 inches) and is set up for a Brembo calipar. It runs on a straight one inch axle. We also make a hub with a 5 bolt pattern on 4.75 and it also has at BMW 5 bolt pattern for use with rear BMW wheels.

I really like my separate sidecar brake. NB 'separate'.

I really didn't like it when I had one plumbed in to the rear brake. I had no method of changing the hydraulics, so the sidecar wheel would lock & skip. I disconnected it fairly soon after I got that one. Yes, it was as instructed to Leigh, but it didn't work.
