    If you have difficulty with brake lever forces, you could look into a single line hydraulic booster.

    The PBR VH44 was a common universal hydraulic booster used on lots of 1970s vehicles in AUstralia, from Holden Specials and Valiants to the Mini Cooper S. Of course once the ADRs required tandem brake circuits, these boosters vanished.

    Modern brake boosters are different and fit to the master cylinder and operate on the pushrod, but these types of single circuit hydraulic boosters are appearing for boosted hydraulic clutches on large 4wds; and of course being Japanese and modern, they are much smaller and tidier. Any half decent brake place should know what you're talking about, especially if you start out with "smaller, modern version of a VH44..."

    Pretty sure that second pic is a Campagne, not a customized Spyder...

    Would like to see a diagram of the sidecar toe in, camber "adjustable" suspension.
    I agree, good looking rig. Best of luck, RP
