I like it, Get it on the road quick! You don't want anyone in the same town as you driving a Mokealike first

One of the first jobs I need to do is put some new brake lines in.I want to declutter the engine bay and move away from the yellow label tandem cyinder and put a cleaner looking single master cylinder in. Can any one tell me what rear pressure reducer I would need. The one that I think I need are out of stock at mini spares http://www.minispare...px|Back to shop

I was looking for the original part. Out of interest, being lighter at the back would you put more braking power to the back or less?
get something like this
as I guess the rear is lighter than normal an you can also increase the braking if loaded.

The power comes from your foot. To much at the rear and you will spin.

Sprayed up my shiny new wheels, now desert sand colour. (Slightly bigger than the black minilites) just the look I'm after now to buy 2 more rally tyes and get all 4 corners raised

Forgot to buy a regulator valve. Also decided to get new rear mini fins

I could not get over how thin the left hand brake disc was. I have never seen this much wear in my life.it was about 5mm thick!

If the back's lighter the tyres have less friction so it's easier to lock up under braking. I'd go for an inertia brake valve, I think it's what Mokes had, vans certainly did, it adapts to load and braking effort better than a pressure sensing valve.
Will a Mini based Hummer be a Mummer?
