Wilwood Brakes

wilwoodbrakeIn the custom motorcycle industry Wilwood is less known than other brands. The reason may be that during 30 years Wilwood focused its efforts on high performance brakes for competition. On any given weekend, you can find Wilwood proprietary parts competing at events around the world. Today Wilwood Engineering develops a line of brake products for all classic, custom, and one-off motorcycles. So, you had to know before you choose your next brakes. Here is a link to their PDF catalog. Wilwood Brakes.

    What a great looking caliper, and from a very well respected company. The industry has needed a high end, bolt on performance product like this for a while, and its finally availible!

    Good Luck, this is a great product!

    Surprisingly, I found out how good these brakes were back as far as 2004 when they came on Surgical Steeds Motorcycles. These new ones are prettier, but man did they brake! Does any other “manufacturer “use these brakes as their primary brakes?

    One of the great things (not mentioned here, but is on our site) is they are made/manufactured right here in California!! We are the only manufacturer of Wilwood brakes but they are available through a number of different distributors throughout the world—or you can call direct to order. 805-388-1188.
    Thank you, Cyril, for putting us on your blog! We read it here every day and enjoy the articles-it keeps us very well informed in the motorcycle industry happenings.

    Wilwood makes great brakes.

    If you do not know, just ask the NASCAR boys.

    Steve, you may want to fix your URL in “Steve Carr” . You are missing the “l” in “motorcyces”, Bro!
