Looking at the dual disc brake Mad Munk front end for a CT70 with 190 engine. Any experience with this front end?

I saw this and thought it would be a great addition to a restomod of a CT70 I am in the middle of prepping. Has anyone ever used or seen this front end in person? The product number is BS0302. The pictures don't show much, so I thought I would ask here!

are you wanting a "better" look with dual disks?

What are your thoughts for a rim? Do you know what these front forks can take for rim?

I'm building a sidecar for the bike. Thinking about whether this will add any extra braking power for the additional weight.

I have the part number for the hub that hooks up to the OEM CT split rims.

Still asking if anyone has any experience with this?

The same setup is available motorkit.com for less money. I had one and installed it on one of my bikes...you can probably find pictures on the site of what it looked like. Did it stop well? Yes...it stopped extremely well...and bottomed out the forks evertime you got on it. So that required me to drain the oil and install HD harley oil and 1" preload spacers and that seemed to correct it. Also, the setup, using a stock front ct wheel and a monkey type star created an offset situation that had to be corrected by removing material on the lathe. No big deal, when you have a lathe I suppose. You also have to assemble them in the correct order of operations. I also had to use custom made spacers to get the tire centered correctly and custom spacers to offset the calipers just slightly. The system i received also had the one side wheel mount that was kind of polished and the other side painted...so i blasted both and repainted them to match and had to match the star up as well . Lastly, i swapped out the lever to a nicer billet one...and this was the biggest PIA to bleed of anything I've ever encountered. I have a mityvac bleeder and it was still impossible to bleed it. I bet I screwed with it for 3 days until it was at an acceptable level that I could safely ride it and probably another 4-5 hours till i got it the way it needed to be. So just realize bleeding it could be an ordeal.

This is fantastic information! Thank you for all this!
