Taking a “brake”

Tomashop phase 1 complete.

Leleu front wheel custom disc brake anti-lock system, peugeot rcx rear sprocket/disc brake project.

After taking a quick break from building the Tomashop I filmed Melvin working on the moby rockstar project front wheel custom disc brake.

Because of the demand this is now a service that we provide. We can pretty much adapt a disc brake to any bike. If you need that upgrade on your moped just send us your fork, wheel, caliper , rotor and we’ll take it from there. Our tools are not fancy but they get the job done.

Depending on each project, prices start at $300. This includes custom made aluminum rotor mount, caliper bracket and labor.

If you don’t have the parts we can provide them at additional cost.

I think Melvin likes my new right angle drill. I can say good bye to it. Au revoir ma petite perceuse…

Commissioned custom disc brake for Peugeot Leleu front wheel to be installed on a motobecane moped in Chicago.


Bernie’s next next project Derbi liquid cooled flat reed dual variated.

Many options for that build. Kit Airsal 90cc, Barikit 78cc, Parmakit 80cc,Parmakit 95cc, etc….
