Cub brakes...from a Cub

5 posts in this topic

Hi all. I have a very non-trick Cub and no immediate desire to make it super competitive, because my riding isn't anyway.

It would be fun, however, for the brakes to make a noticeable difference to the speed of the bike. What can be done, retaining the standard hubs, to improve matters. I'm really not planning to replace or rebuild the wheels in the near future.

Cheers

Fit oversize linings turned to the same diameter as the drum, you get full contact that way so they'll be as good as possible

Thanks Tony, that sounds logical.  I'll start figuring out a jig for the lathe.

I have a pair of shoes that were relined by Saftek, they made a massive difference.

I had the brake shoes for the front wheel of my Matchless relined by Villiers Services, using trials linings made up to fit the diameter of the drum.  Happy with the result.
