    on Step 2. I'd use a braided line, for that short rubber section, requiring movement/flex for maintaining consistency in the 'feel' of the brakes. Just rubber may produce a 'spongy' feel over time.

    I read an older post I think you wrote about using juice drums for the rear? I have a 77' ironhead bobber and I have mechanical drum brakes on the rear but I was talking to my friend who builds bikes and he gave me a 15" invader wheel for the rear that came with a juice drum that I'm going to use for the rear I just need to figure out how I'm going to setup the controls

    Juice drums is something I am not familiar with and was always planning on using drums on the rear. Can you give me an explanation on what a juice drum is, thanks.
