Looking good, I'll be watching to see it come to life. interesting set up with the twin calipers on the rear wheel 

USCA # 8913

  That twin caliper set up is for the front wheel, not the rear.

ah, didn't catch that, now I see it 

USCA # 8913

If you look close you will see it is a BMW rear wheel. So I can run a rear wheel on all three corners. I have the same set up on my current rig. Stops and steers awesome. Older caliper set up on the older bike.

 Do you run all the same tires on all three wheels. If you running a rear tire on front do you reverse the rotation?

Generally no. I usually put a new set on for a big trip. Flavour of the day, I am not to fussy about tires. Round and black will do.  I do run the Car tire backwards so I can rotate it on to Pusher if I wear it out on a trip. Which I have.  I do like the Heidenau K60 as a pusher. I seem to get good wear out of them and they work for the type of riding I do. This last go round, I have ended up with a Mish Mash of half worn out tires so I have been rotating them into service to wear them out. Being of the thrifty sort :-). The new LBS rig is going to start out with a Car tire as a Pusher and a couple Michelins on the car and the front. Never thought about running the front tire backwards, don't think I will.

I should have being more clearer. If you put the wheel from the back to the front do change the rotation of the tire.  I know on other bike that use the rear tire in the front when you put a wide tire kit on a couple of the tire manufacturers  say if you are running a rear tire in the front to change the rotation.  In may case is they don't make a front tire the same size as the rear.

Something to consider. Not something I am going to fuss over though

 

Getting oh so close to go get it
