A friends nephew is going through the process of learning to walk with an artificial leg. The kid lost it in Afghanistan a year ago. He grew up riding dirt bikes and wants to ride again. I found lots of info on the net on ideas for making the right side workable for him. But I thought I would tap this vast knowledge base for some ideas. SO here is what I have. 2007 TTR 230, that I need to make so he can brake easily and safely and use the pegs. He has a below the knee amputation, knee is functional. His leg will be one of the new blade type. I am looking at welding a little larger plate on the brake pedal (same with foot peg) But from what I have read, this a not the easiest for braking as the leg does not know exactly how hard contact is on the pedal. I had a friend recommend maybe hooking a brake light setup so when the brake is pushed, a light on the handlebar by the key comes on, indicating pressure on the the brake(what do you think?). But because of the feeling issue I am looking at doing a hand brake setup with a shorter (3") handle on the right side, above the front brake so he can distinguish which is which by feel. I have a setup off a mountain bike that looks like it will fit and work but I not sure on durability. We will be able to squeeze it in and have it so he can get both at the same time. The issues I am looking at are ways of connecting the cable from the front in with the back brake linkage. I am thinking of making a connection right here But looking at ideas on how to best do this, I see this as a weak point, that if not done right could fail at a bad time! I could do baling wire and duct tape, but I do not want to make it look like something my great grandfather was fixing!(Only thing he never could fix with baling wire was his dentures! That is where his duct tape came in... ) Footpeg issue, do I make it as wide as the artificial leg with a cup shape to help keep him on the peg when standing? His main use will be Forest roads and ATV tracks, nothing extreme like what some of you did this last weekend! I have access to a great metals shop , parts and materials and 2 skilled fabrication guys that are going to donate time, but do not ride. So all you experts give me some input if you have any. Then we are giving it to him hopefully in October when he comes out here for hunting season, we are going to get him some elk meat.
