Just be lucky you have brakes. I have none, and I would believe you could if you looked at some fab work

That's interesting, never thought of doing the brake on a hand lever. Can you post a pic when you have a min?

We don't use the stock brake anymore, but our brake pedal setup has not changed much since we did.

We took the brake rod off of the clutch rod, and installed a separate pedal on the right foot board. We just took a simple piece of flat stock steel, bent at a right angle to make something you can hit with your foot, that goes through the foot board and pivots on a bolt we put through the frame. The brake rod is connected to the bottom of the "pedal's" arm, and we attached a spring to pull it back when you take your foot off.

This was one of the easier, and most useful mods we did. We have since upgraded the pedal's design and angle, but it has stayed fundamentally the same since we came up with it.
