Thanks Mike but the 56 has a diferent frame and pedal crank housing to the 50,on the 50 the rear fork legs join onto/into the crank housing/ engine mount casting which has a boss cast into it where the left fork leg attaches and i thought this was a mount /piviot for some part of brake gear Ken

Hi Ken, I know very little about the powerbikes, but I have books with some information on them. In one book when referring to the back brake on the powerbike 50, it starts (The arrgangement of the rear-brake mechanism may be something of a mystery unless the method of operation is understood) I will PM you this information. Looking at the diagram some of the parts on the 56 look similar to those of the 50. But like I said I know very little. Mike Cool
