Manx: I enjoyed your video and look forward to the build updates. However I do not think that the GS models ever went to the rear brake on the right of the wheel. Of the big singles the switchover was only on the BB31/33 models.

It was a massive nightmare to find a brake pedal. Probably due to the fact that the only reproduced ones are the short clubman type.

There are plenty of the cross over brake pedal available.

The one I got hold of was from the US and came off a RGS.

Part number 42 - 7003.

Manx: I think the hardest pedal to find is the longer one for the clamp-on scrambles pegs. I assume you are going to use the splined roadster type pegs.

I am looking forward to your investigation of the internal tuning bits. A Pearson crank and clutch is a great way to start a project. Which head to you have? CB, DB or DBD?

It's not fun trying to find the clamp-on scrambler pegs, either.

My '60 Cat is supposed to have the one-piece non-folding ones, but all I find are ones "modified" to fold, or original folding ones.

Another thing to consider is just how far forward those clamp on pegs are. For me, they are too far forward for my liking. The splined type can be modified to a more rearward location and seem to be plenty strong enough for most trail riding. That is what I did on my Goldie dual sport bike.
Here's a photo.

The RH side is similar. I shortened the shift lever and turned it around so it aims rearward. This gives enough room for a boot and the shifting effort is still reasonable. The foot peg has to be folded up for clearance when kick starting.
