year 1976 on a 1969 (?) bridgestone 175 street scrambler. 2 stroke rotary valve 2 cylinder bike.
Drum brakes. There is a link from the fork to the backing plate so the shoes don't spin around.
The link broke. The backing plate rotates in the direction to pull the cable tight. I went on my Azz!
Another time on a Yamaha RD350 I ha been working on it. The front axle slid partway out at 50+ mph causing
the rotor to lock up in the caliper from misalignment. I went on my azz. The skid mark was less than 2 feet long from riding
to sliding. Please don't mess with your front brakes.
