Stopping power of stock, mechanical front brakes on Big Twins thru 1949 with springer style forks is debatable, to say the least. Improvements were difficult to achieve without major (visible) changes. This stock looking Dual leading shoe version of the factory Springer brake improves stopping power if installed correctly. Ride your classic mount with the confidence of having a brake that does what it is supposed to do, when it counts.
Check for clearance to rocker axle nuts!
Attention! Possible assembly fault and brake drum failure.Some brake drum/wheel hub combinations require one or more spacer shims (front W&W 27-748, rear 27-746) to prevent them from touching the hub’s spoke rim. The brake drum must not touch the hub’s spoke flange. This might result in the drum breaking when tightening lug bolts.

Dual Leading Shoe Brake PerformanceYes, two leading shoes brake better than the stock single cam equipment, but you still will not have the performance of a disc brake. For those who expect such stopping power we recommend a Springer drum to disc brake conversion kit.
