More progress being made on the project with the new front brakes, brake cable & handlebars installed. You can read about how I did that here.
Thanks to Bob Fleischer, again, for tips and tricks and to Duane Ausherman.
I found a nifty template from Scott Lydiard (BMWScotter.com) that helped get the front brake levers aligned correctly on the brake levers. Scott’s site is having some problems but he was kind enough to provide a PDF of this template that I provide a link to in the write-up. Here’s a picture of the template.
You can cut it out and use it with the brakes installed.
Here are a couple more pictures from the write-up.
Great site and wonderful photos on the /5’s . I am presently having issues with front brake effectiveness on my wife’s 72 toaster. Do you have a link to the brake alignment template available? I am not very computer savvy and could not locate it.
