Default Re: Scrounging pays off yet again!

What a great find! Those junk piles are full of neat stuff.
Keep us informed and post some pix.

You probably know this but for the benefit of others here's a trick for fabricating a caliper mount.

Make your brackets then clamp the caliper to the rotor by locking the actuator arm in the braked position. With the caliper tight on the rotor you'll know exactly where to tack weld the caliper brackets. Tack them, take things apart then make your final weld to the fork.

Good luck.
