Founded by Peter Koning in 1990, we started out simply as a car brakes service in the Hoppers Crossing area (Victoria. Australia).
Peter had a long history in hot rodding and qualifications in Mechanical Engineering, it wasn’t long before more than a few interesting rods, customs and restorations came through the workshop.
Soon, Hoppers Stoppers was the “place” to have your collectible car fixed, be it a simple service or full restoration.
We give you a real choice of options, full information and supply of compatible systems, and spare parts that can be bought at any time.
Old car brakes were always in demand and quite a few modified cars were fitted with bigger brakes; at least whatever was available at the time.
In the late 90’s, new cars began to use separate rotor/hub designs and with PBR going to twin piston calipers on larger 300mm rotors with the VT introduction, a range of adaptable brakes became available at affordable prices.
Today, many locally built cars use similar large PBR systems, offering us the ability to engineer modern, available and economical upgrades for most popular cars.
