mechanical brake caliper
« on: 10 June 2020, 03:43:00 pm »
Has anyone got a spare mechanical brake calliper they want rid of?  I'm looking for one for my handbrake and don't want to pay £40+ for one

Would one of these do the job https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mini-Moto-Dirtbike-REAR-FRONT-BRAKE-CALLIPER-DISC-CABLE-Minimoto-Dirt-Bike-49cc/162881752864?
I saw something similar and wondered whether they might be too small ie not able to accommodate the width of the disc.  At that price though I'll take the risk and tell you how I get on.   Thanks.

I have used one of those calipers before and it is easy to put in a spacer for your disc width. Should work fine.
