New MOD

So some didn't consider my last brake mod from factory pads to ceramic pads a mod...

So how's this?

Built it in about 4hours, start to finish... Had to heat the 1in thick plate to red hot and use a 6ft cheater pipe to bend it in the vise it was in...

10in drop hitch with 1/2in thick gusset (2x6 triangle), tripple pass FCAW on the receiver tubing to the plate...

One day, there will be a trailer being pulled behind that street queen.... With lots of toys... Several trailers actually...

It's not a street queen though completely.... In the summer yes...

Winter time, I'm never off the mountain and I have quite a few pics to prove that!
