Flat trackers don't have front brakes

Most minimalist bobbers don't have front brakes either

That bike simply had the front disc and caliper removed as you can still see the lugs on the fork for the caliper. My triumph stops great. It's got a 4 pot caliper and a 300mm disc from the factory

Oh come on, it's just an interesting piece for interest's sake....closely followed by another airhead

Question You mean "Lets see your cafe bike with knobbies"?

I love the bikes, but most of these are cafe bikes not scramblers, putting a set of knobbies on a cafe bike does not a scrambler make.

Just to put your mind at rest- R80/7 scrambler by Blitz Motorcycles of Paris, at a recent French GS event:

with all the different opinions going around as to what defines what, I'm a firm believer that the guy/gal holding the handlebar defines what kind of bike it is.
