I have been looking at parts for pit bikes. They are inexpensive.This is a setup for an ATV , all 4 wheels only about $70.Something for a two wheeler is about half that. http://www.pocketbikeparts.com/Hydraulic_Brake_s/45.htm

Good find! I was going to use the brakes off of a pocketbike, but they are mechanical... I like the hydraulic ones! I bet they work well, and they're cheap!

There are probably more options for you in Europe, for parts sources, with the vast numbers of the smaller bikes on the road over there. There may be salvage/junkyards that specialize in just that. I know we have places here just for the bigger bikes ,atvs and personal watercraft(PWC).

Here is another link for an ATV set-up that has the rod for the brake pedal.A little more but, I have a young daughter and nieces and nephews who will be riding it .
Embarassed Oh, By the way this will be for my ATLT not my UTV that I am working on right now.
I am going to reuse the band brake on that cause it won`t be faster than stock, about 4.6 mph tops. Smile
They do make longer lines for the smaller brake set-ups.

Here is another link .I know that this is a hand brake but it should not be too hard to remove the lever and connect it to a rod and pedal. You would only have to figure out how to mount the cylinder to the frame and that should be easy to mount to a tube.

There arent many scrapy yards locally to me anyway, and those that are only really deal in cars mostly. I'll just have to keep a look out everywhere. SHouldnt be hard to make a good setup for cheap!

That is complete minus the pads.They have those as well .You would need to get the rotor and mount it on the axle ,then mount the caliper to a bracket on the frame. You can use a rotor from a go-kart set-up or buy it from http://www.northerntool.com .
