- First, I cut the bottom of the frame down to gain room for the mount. I started with 1"x1/4" steel bar as a foundation for the new mounting stem. I machined the bar down to spec then drilled and tapped it, and attached it to the frame.
- Next, I took some 1" round steel bar and turned it down to fit the new brake lever. The turned down stem was welded onto the foundation bar and the end was tapped to accept a screw to hold the new lever. The lever was cut, re-welded and drilled at various points to fit the contour of the frame. I then drilled the lever to fit the new connecting bar that I made to go to the rear drum brake.
- Lastly, I added a return spring and mounts to the lever and frame.
