I'm not sure there's anything stopping you as long as the brakes reach the required standard. Was it Indian that had a left side twistgrip and right side twist type advance - retard. And a foot clutch? Apparently that's why they are used on the Wall of Death.

Having said that, not a mod I'd fancy.

ANY modification will probably affect the insurance.

The ones with drum brakes can be a bit like that. Smile

Funnily enough there is a Chinese version of the Ural/Dnepr.

Oscar Hedstrom and George M Hendee the designers were both left handed
thats the reason for the left side twistgrip
of course bike cops found it useful when firing their revolvers and the urban myth spread that the bikes were designed for that purpose
