Lets try this. I am not giving any advice or even posting any pics ( yet). I will start this thread off with a question, but wait for it and keep reading. There is method in my madness. A really common question is about what kind of brakes for my traditional rod. So lets make this primarily a thread about what was done or is being done so that the fellas that don't know can learn something. If you want to post something but are not sure then say so that way it can be corrected sans drama. If you have a question feel free its all about learning here. Feel free to give a show and tell how to. So like I promised here is question number one: When did Lincoln go to self energizing brakes and were they the first? Have it fellas and have fun with it.
