Parts list is building up fast...just dropped some bills on sorting the seat and grommets...lots of grommets.   The thing did not come with a brake, so I'm going back and forth on whether to go dual disk stock, single disk stock or a set of period correct AP's dual disk.   EBC makes a sweet upgraded disk that is full floating and drilled.  The stock brakes are just about worthless even when they are working perfectly.  But..stock brings the most $$$...if I were to sell it.  UGH....Oh, and to go full stock is more than the upgraded AP setup.  Used clapped out brakes are stupid expensive.for stock.   There are aftermarket reproductions, but I figure if your going stock, use the real deal parts.

Found a place that sells oversized rims for the H2, so I'm going to get a set of Alu.,  front 18" x 2.75" and rear at 18" x 3.5".  I'll be able to put a 110 on the front and a 140 on the rear.  
I'll feel safer with a little meat to the ground.   Pretty much decided to go with an AP twin brake setup on the front with stock diameter EBC full floating rotors.   To buy a used stock twin disk setup is MORE than the AP upgrade.
