    Well you could actually use the dual disc forks in combination with the longer cartridges that U-P mentions.
    Also the X bike setup with the forks behind the steering head is said to give better handling.
    Just on the cruisers they would look strange with that setup and no fairing to hide it.
    I've thought a lot about setting up a twin disc front end and it's mentally coming together, ...just a matter of getting the correct mix of complimentary parts.
    I have another complete Kingpin USD fork assembly that I had on my Vegas...I removed it and replaced with the RaceTech modified Vegas forks that I originally put together on my Vegas before scoring a brand new USD Set complete with chrome triple clamps.
    I have a Vision front wheel that I also ran on my Vegas with just one disc rotor, and I've stockpiled 2 brand new disc rotors as well.
    So really all I'm missing is the opposite side USD fork leg with provision for a brake caliper.
    Oh and a pair of the later brake calipers so I can use Lyndalls Ultimate brake pads like I had in the Vegas and later Kingpin front.
    The Lyndalls Ultimates don't fit the earlier Kingpin front that's on the 2006 yellow Kingpin, so I'm currently running the clicky Metal Gear pads, they pull up ok but not as good as Lyndalls....
    Hope that's not all been too confusing!

    Going to swap the spoke wheels off the CR to a set of takeoff cast wheels, (I hate innertubes)
    but since the Judge isn't going to be my road bike I think the 60 spoke wheels would look pretty good. Did a dry fit with the new cast rear wheel on the Judge, looks like a drop in fit. Didn't have a tire on it but looks like going from a 160 to 180 isn't going to be a problem. This is shaping up to be a fairly easy, relatively cheap build.
    Having said that I've just jinxed the whole operation.
    Also have 4 new take off black centered rotors as well as the 2 on the Judge so that's covered and a brand new blackrear pulley, (another take off).

    Brembo brakes are the gold standard for brakes, you have to go through a Ducati,KTM or BMW dealer to get any upgraded pads but even Harley has gone to Brembos. The Nissin brakes are okay but I like the Brembos better.

    You can get better pads from EBC for Brembo calipers.Did just that on my Challenger.

    Lyndall Gold brake pads are excellent on my CCT. Witchdoctors typically has them available.
