Working on a Shadow and found these brakes on front of bike. The chain system seems a little too much for me.

That's crafty, looks well made. Have you ridden it? Will be interested to hear how well it works. Whoever came up with that was a thinker, it needs to be preserved as a monument to someones ingenuity.
