My understanding is that the double sided brake was exclusive to Matt Holder – in fact, legend has it that he was “negotiating” with Norton to do a deal whereby he would let them use his front brake design in exchange for them supplying Roadholder forks.

Incidentally, the Dowty fork conversion to springs was solely of Matt’s doing, and as far as I have been able to assertain, the only forks where the springs act in tension – so they are quite “un”conventional!

What’s your opinion Jeff??
