I mourn for that poor minibike. Sad I personally like the concept of the sticky uppy hand brake, but then again I have never tryed it so  @RichieRichOverdrive is probally right.

Howdie how! Gentlemen! We got brakes!
Finalized the caliper mount and brake lever, finally went for a foot one, made more sense.
I had a sportster brake pedal that i made to work with the cable pull set up.
Works like a charm and leaves me plenty of room for a gas pedal ☺.
Here are the latest pics

Hopefully I can get to the gas pedal and wiring next week wink
Have a good one!

Loving that brake setup! Looks super clean!

Do you have a left front transaxle mount?

Thanks.!!, a bit high but out of the way and no way to shorten it as I can't weld aluminum.
Yeah all the transaxle mounts are there and I will reinforce both rears in the near future

Got some time today and got quite a bit done!
Gas pedal, and got lucky on the exhaust! Some stainless pipes with the right bends, well, almost 🤣.
And a triumph muffler that was there for years!
What ya'll think?

Love how this thing is turning out! The steering wheel is awfully high, do you plan on lowering it any? I keep my steering shafts pretty short on my tractors.

I know right, looks kinda goofy but feels right once seated.
Might shorten a bit but a whole lot as it is supposed to be a workhorse not a show queen, at least that was the original plan but got quite carried away 🤣🤣🤣.
Thanks for the kind words it keeps me going at it!
