Fred’s peugeot 103 gets a disc brake

Freddie commutes everyday with his fast bike becoming unsafe with the small drum brake system.

Another challenge for Tomahawk, adapting a low cost disc brake system on the 5 star front wheel without machining any aluminum part.

I’m using my 103 RCX old EBR fork and Grimeca brake assembly from the 2010 polini cup + new $16 rotor disc + $20 of hardware.

Good plug color and home made fork brace.

How to turn a set of pedals into a heavy duty custom made peg + launch lever… heat up, bend, cut, grind and weld.

Freddie happy with his new disc brake and much safer bike.

Disc brake testing on Sunset Blvd, beating the traffic… and getting few thumbs up.
