Project: rear Moto brake
Project rear Moto brake
Bike: Super Soco TS
Replace and remove the original rear brake and replace it with pedal pressure rear moto brake system.
Easy part is to remove the old rear brake
Hard part is to design and build a working rear brake system.
Any thoughts guys? I like the idea of having more of a moto style braking for the rear braking.
This is the rear brake conversion I made up for my TC last year. I think the same design should work for the TS.
The pedal and master cylinder attached to a bracket installed behind the foot rest, and operated on the existing rear brake, without having to replace the caliper. The handlebar mounted lever was still able to operate the rear brake as well.
The installation also included a switch to operate the brake lamp.
I didn't think to use it that way! I made it up because I was going through the various stages to get the full bike licence, and I didn't want to get confused when swapping between the Soco and the instructor's bike.
Once I got the licence sorted out, I unfortunately took it off, and sold it on ebay! It's a pity I didn't keep it, maybe I could have started mass production! 😉
