Electric handbrake

Hi, looking to install an electric handbrake on to my current trike build and was thinking of using an electric windows motor to pull the 2 cables to apply the brake but I'm unsure what type of motor would be best.
Any advice please.
Cheers Bash

Lehman used what looks like a Mustang II or Pinto handbrake ratcheting lever.
I see UK ..... needed for MOT?


Will a hydraulic lock not pass?

Has to be completely separate from the hydraulic system for the UK mot.
Because I'm doing an anniversary trike were in usually put the parking brake lever is not possible as the foot rest moves so trying to think of an electric system to bypass the problem.

Maybe a linear actuator?

That looks just the job. Any idea how much pull it would need to operate the handbrake?
And does it need to go all the way back in to operate properly.

The liernear is strong enough to break anything it's hooked to,some kind of limit switch would need to be in line somewhere,you might be able to put a strong spring in to hold the brakes and set it to just pull on the breaks to hold the trike.

Love chasing white lines but they are difficult to catch.Hate drivers with no STOPLIGHTS.
