Twin Disc conversion for Triumph Trident

First step was to machine the caliper bracket from a suitable aluminium billet.

A flat was milled on the fork leg.

The bracked was placed in position on the fork leg & held with two small tack welds.

 Followed by a larger tack on the back of the bracket.

The bracket was fully welded to the fork leg on both sides & the welds were smoothed, blended & lightly polished. Then a bracing rib was added.
The finished fork leg after final smoothing, blending & light polishing of the welds and drilling & tapping the holes for the caliper bolts. New one on the right, original on the left.
