    If anyone knows a good way to do the brakes, please let me know

    Is there any way to incorporate disc brakes? Perhaps you could mount the calipers
    to the frame some how?

    That indeed is the problem there is not much frame out by the wheels to mount calipers and I don't know what I could mount the discs to if I got them out there.


    I have a car type emergency brake I am thinking of using, that could be a parking brake as well

    But am thinking as primitive as just something to rub against the wheel If any one has pictures or a link to a way to do it better please don't be shy about it.
    I also expect those blocks of wood holding the chair in place to be replaced by something more substantial as well
