What is the front wheel off of? Might want to consider a bit larger disk.

Yep and it says so right on the rim

Is that a 4 bolt rotor? Might have an oversized rotor, brake setup floating around.

Yep it's off of the old XL. It's something that need to be changed for sure. It is indeed a 4 bolt. Man if you have a bigger rotor that would be great just name a price!! Can you imagine?......An HD that stops?! Figures that it would take Honda parts!

Thanks man.

Love that vid by the way! It's been playing in my mind ever since I got my grubby hands on this bike. I wonder how those guys at 1:17 feel about getting passed in a corner on an MX track by a relatively stock Harley?!

For those that may not have seen this one...

Obviously not exactly what you have in mind but here's a sorta brat styled Scram-ster thingy that I really like.



It's in my Sportster project bike inspiration folder.

More pics of the bike here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/billdoz...th/7389912106/

And a build thread of sorts here: http://www.chopcult.com/forum/showth...highlight=EZXL

Hello there,
have you seen what your neighbour did/does with his Harley:
http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...657449&page=35
I connected the second-last page (is this the right term?) to wetten your mouths. But the whole thread is worth a very, very close look!!!
Kind regards, Bambi
