Did you buy the brake pedal online if so where or is it off a used bike? I like the brake pedal for the back wheel better then a hand lever brake.

Hope it's sturdy enough because it *looks* a bit spindly and thin. You might have to beef it up some. Give it some rough, real-world testing first.

I agree jeffone; rear foot-pedal brake is the thing--just like motorcycles. Though I guess on a minibike, you could have both brakes operated at the handlebars but that would be weird for some people.

its thick enough 3/8" cut a little too much off for clearance.

Now that I have it set up...may build another of that set up since I have all the measurements.
Making some beefy longer pegs as well
