Can anyone tell me if the 1973 6 lug drum braked Servi-car came with a park brake, or how I could fit one?
Australian design rules say that all trikes must have a park brake.
Thanks in advance, Les. email@example.com
Not absolutely sure on 1973, but I would thank it would be the same parking brake mounted on the foot brake pedal lever as on 1972 and earlier. My 1956 has this lever and as far as I know only difference in rear end and brakes is your 6 bolt brake drum pattern. You push the brake pedal down and lock in place with this parking brake lever. It locks the brakes hydraliclly.
Hope these pictures come through. If not "Palmer" book has a good enlarged photo of installed parking brake. Main part of lever mounts on brake pedal and there is a bracket (which I do not have) that mounts to floorboard strap. The teeth on lever catch on bracket when applied. These come up on ebay fairly regularly and are not expensive.
Thanks for the photos but I can not open them as my account has not been activated because I have not recieved an activation email and dont know what to do about it. Can anyone help??? firstname.lastname@example.org
PS what is a Palmer Book???
I believe you have to have at least six posts made to the board. Then it might take another day for photo access. The "Palmer" book I believe is "How to Restore Harley Davidson Motorcycles". Search Bruce Palmer as author. It is the bible of Harley restoration and readily available new or on Ebay.
