A50 brake ( again )
« on: 10 August, 2019, 10:03:43 »
I've discovered that 1964 A50 Star twins could be ordered with an 8" instead of 7" front brake. 
As my bike is very original I fancy going for this upgrade with hub skimming/ shoe sizing etc. to get the best out of it.  I had this done to an Enfield brake to good effect.

The question is;  are A10 8" fw. hubs the same carried through into unit twin use, same spindle size etc?

The full width 8 inch iron hub was the same through from 1958 until 1965. The spindle was the same for 7 inch and 8 inch full width hubs 1958-1965.

Thanks Julian, that's very helpful.  I'll try asking on here for parts first. 

Cheers
