Just like the Cool Kids

Just try'n to be like you cool kids.
I bought this leading link a month or so back. I came off a 1984 Honda Magna. I had to turn a couple eccentric shafts to fit the triple tree spacing of my cb900 and weld the down tubes to them. Now I just have to remount the brake fixed calipers. You can see the existing caliper mounting holes in the lower link. I'm thinking about mounting them on top of the rotor, keep them out of the mud and the blood and the beer. Any thoughts on where to mount them? Down low or up high?

Being able to do stuff gets me in too deep sometimes. Knowing if I should do stuff is often the key

Yeah, that's a good point.

At least my limits ..... limit me I don't even know where I'd start the learning process

I grew up as a Toolmaker, so building stuff is second nature to me. But bike building not so much, and welding well that's always been considered dirty work to my kind. Now that I have a need I wish I'd kept up on my welding training from long ago.....
