For you guys (and gals?) that are driving rigs with CHS, are the hubs automotive, or purpose built? Are you running one or two calipers on the disc? What make of caliper are you using? What are you using for a master cylinder? Are the front brakes operated from the handlebar?What is the disc diameter? What size tires/wheels are you running?

Thanks,

Mike Lydon

Bill, do you know what car the hub came from? Does your spindle use automotive ball joints or heim ends?
