8-4-22 Time to put the front brakes together, I started with the master cylinder...

Sleeve Camera lens Grey Denim Electric blue


Watched a YouTube video on how to do it, you MacGyver a tool to press the parts in! Trick is to get all the parts in place and put the nut in and then thread it!

Had to grind down a 5/8" wrench so I can turn the nut!

Nice build photos, Eddie. And I dig the handlebars on your lawnmower, lol.

btw, I live right near A1-BBQ and eat there all the time. It is a hole in the wall but they have the BEST Chinese food. 👍

Back home I put the Street Triple next to the Sportster, visually they look really close. Well I decided to tape measure the wheelbases: Triumph = 55" SV = 56" Sportster = 59"
