By cutting two new keyways at about 120° before and after the original keyway, it gave me a lot of adjustment to get the timing spot on. I should have only had to cut one but couldn't decide which way I needed to go! Obviously these keyways are not exactly 120° out, as the need to give a difference....

An interesting front brake at the 2019 Annual Rally

I spotted a couple of similarly modified front brakes at the 2019 Annual Rally. Unfortunately... I never spotted the owners! Does anyone know anything about these brakes?
