Would appreciate some feedback about how to move the handbrake lever/ratchet mechanism outboard of the frame to give my big feet some much needed room inside my speedster cowling.

Photos are always preferred for those of us with A.D.D!!

Thanks,
Mike in Texas

Scroll down this thread a little bit more than half way and you'll see where I posted pics of how I did mine.

This is how I did mine took one bad handbrake lever for parts and 3/4 round bar two clevis's
Some 1x1 and 2x2 angle iron and added the S curve for style
Still allow for stock brake rods or add a longer round bar and shorten the brake rods your choice
I have done it both ways

Back about 7"and outboard 7"
All bolt up the outriggers are at a slight angle to each other to hold it true
