Since my frame and forks didn't have mountings for disc brakes I bought 2 mounting adapters from these guys Brake-Parts-Hardware/

NOTE: If you use these adapters you'll need 180 mm rotors. I had to do a little cutting on my stretch frame to get the rear adapter to fit but shouldn't be a problem with a regular cruiser frame. Also, to mount on front forks just grind off the tab that fits in the axel slot.

Very nice bike. Where did the dual brake lever come from and do you have more detailed pics?
