View Full Version : disc brakes on a 110?

11-13-2011, 10:57 PM
in the process of building an 83 110... thinking about trying to do a rear disc set up, maybe a front too. has anyone tried this?

the plans
powdercoat frame, axle, and misc stuff black, forks and tank red, wheels will be gold, or black.
pro taper fat bars with a twist throttle. gonna try and get some ims pegs to replace stock rubber pegs
motor will get bored(not sure how big yet), ported head, cam, bore the carb, and lighten the flywheel also have a dg pipe.

any other suggestions?

The disc brake has been done. I wish I had a link to some of the other threads, but I do not. Do some digging and see what you can come up with! :welcome:

Thanks guys... dcreel that thing looks good. how did you make the mount for the disk? or was that a purchased item?

I did do a little digging before posting, but didn't really come up with much.

Ok, here's a few things to keep in mind. If you do all those things to a stock framed 110, then you will end up having a 110 with a bunch of money in it and it won't really be worth all that money. One of the big hang ups with the later model atc110s is the cdi system. It isn't hardly worth all the effort to hot rod a later 110 with the cdi. Also, the stock stamped steel frames aren't really worth a crap either. If you wanted to get an aftermarket 110 frame, then at least you would have a sturdy frame (basic platform) to start with. I haven't seen much bigger pistons for the later model 110 trikes either. Most of the hop up parts were made for the atc90/ early atc110 engines that were points and condenser based. And the trickest parts, were based on the atc90 engines. Big bore cylinders, alcohol 14:1 pistons, stroker cranks and such were more made for the atc90 engines. There are oil coolers, chain tnesioners, vented dipsticks, aftermarket frames, aftermarket frames with rear suspension, aftermarket front triple trees that take motorcyle front suspension forks, custom wheels, custom electric start kits, fiberglass fenders, knock off rear wheel bolts, custom seats all kinds of little goodies. The biggest easy to build atc90 engines went to around 185ccs' or so. And if you used other cranks and goodies, 200+ cc engines can be built, but those take big money with lots of special fitting and machining and knowledge. You can still get cranks stroked out, but not as much of a stroke as most places would do a long time ago. Big pistons, cylinders and stuff, well all the parts really are getting harder to find, even though there is a person or 2 trying to revive making big bore kits. You used to be able to buy big bore cyllinder that used cb750 pistons, but those are getting super hard to find, super hard meaning big money if you find them. Most of the goodies any more seem to be out on the west coast where these trikes were first being built. But come build a real crazy trike and make it worth the money spent. First, get on ebay and buy one of the 2 aftermrket frames on there right now. You will have to use 82 and earllier atc110/ atc90 parts though.
