Depends on the specific model. My 2009 AVL Classic has a font drum, but other models had a disk.Bob
Like two bikes,same year same model,one with the drum and the other with a disc.
But they're not the same model: The Classic has front drum, the Electra has front disc, in the same year.They may have come from the factory that way but my point was and confirmed by Kevin that some have had kits added so you could have two classics one with drum and one with disc. Thats why I was asking if it was an option.Sorry if I didn't explain myself very well.As long as you realize you limitations and ride accordingly,all will be fine. I've put thousands of miles on choppers with a drum rear and a spool on the front with no problems. Me, too. the Enfield is the first bike I've had since the '70s with a front brake. It took me 3 or 400 miles before I even got used to USING the front brake on the Enfield. I kept forgetting it HAD one. I'm only now, at 600 some odd miles, getting used to it.
