Might be worth a try first.
Ive now set the thing up as stock but will run the chair brake seperately. Thanks for input though, I assumed the rear MC would not cope with three.
I have got hold of and installed the rear wheel/tyre, I have got the front brake hoses made up by pirtec in Avonmouth, not cheap but top quality Earles lines. All is wired but as Ive asked the painter to paint the chair wheel to match, I can do nowt now until the paintwork is done.
Anyway.........Today I collected a great buy, a velocet fuel tank, not sure from what it comes but it fits on the carrier a treat and I guess holds approx 6 liters. I plan to splice into the fuel feed for the injection.
I was thinking of additional capacity if we ever run onto the continent with it, so, at a fiver it seemed a gift, what do you lot reckon?
