Who said Norton ever made a 4LS front brake :?:madass140 said:I had some Robinson brakes which I considered replicating, but in my opinion they were a very poor design, in particular the hub, the Yamaha 260mm brake is far superior,
Well now that its established that Norton made 4LS brakes there should be no problem acquiring one , problem solved.
The last series of Manx Norton race bikes (from about 1960 to 1962) were equipped with a Norton designed double sided 2LS which I guess you could say was a 4LS. These are still in production (replicas) and popular with current Classic racers.ML said:[quote

Care to explain :?:Code:
And here is the dilemma, a Manx fork has 7inch centres, a Commando 73/8 inch centres :!:madass140 said:then I'm sure if Arpi does some research he will find a replica of the Manx one, but I doubt it looks similar to the Commando version. shouldnt be to hard to find.
With reference to the following ;johnm said:I have recently converted a Norton Dominator 7 " centres SLS to a Manx 4LS (for racing) and offer the following.
Firstly and probably most importantly a replica Norton 4LS front brake is seriously expensive. Together with the other changes you need to make you will not have any change from US$4000 plus.
The brake is magnesium but you might be able to get an aluminium replica made on special order.
They are the top end of the market and they are neither cheap nor fit and forget
