Thread: Does the hidden rear brake caliper kit still exist?

  1. #1

    Does the hidden rear brake caliper kit still exist?

    I used to own a XB12S about 9-10 years ago, back then there was a kit to mount a single-piston Brembo caliper behind the swingarm.
    Does it still exist, or can you fabricobble your own?

    Wow, this blew up! Heh, I meant to ask kind of off-handedly, but I'm surprised at how much parts support is still available for XBs.

    Cooter, I'll probably hit you up when I'm ready - I appreciate the consideration.

    One of the things I'd also like to do is convert the XB12SS lounge sofa into the XB12S seat, but I don't have the ability to weld and I don't have machinist buddies.

    You can put the rear seat rails, tail 'pan', and seat from an S on your Ss with some slight modification to the frame mounts.

    Or take off the cover and shape the seat foam how you like it, and re-cover:
