THIS ARTICLE WAS WRITTEN BY VANCE BLOSSER

As this is being written (September 2004), the rear and sidecar brakes on the Retro Sidecar model are hydraulic drum brakes and the front brake is hydraulic disk. With time, changes may be made to the braking system that may incorporate improvements or design changes.

Detailed Description
The rear brakes on the Retro cannot be adjusted at the master cylinder without inviting lockups - just like a car. For some reason, the brake shoe wear adjusters were omitted on this model.
