Designs look good, especially as no spacers will be required to work with ISO.

As Kevin Costner once said: "If you build it, they will come"! Correction, I think someone is his dream, or a whispering field of corn may have said it, but hey, seemed appropriate somehow (not that I watch Kevin Costner movies - I'll stop now before I incriminate myself further).

OK guys,

Time for the shocking part, costs of these parts......... :shock:

The front ones comes out at £14 each., the rear ones £19. Sadly small production runs are costly, but looking on Chain Reaction costs are on par with some of the parts they do.

Postage would be about £2 each.

The front one is for a 160mm disc, the rear is for 140mm, the horst link will need to be rearranged so the nylock doesn't foul the disc.

That doesn't seem unreasonable to me. Would I be right in saying that it would be possible to use an adaptor to run larger discs?

Cheers

Ian

These will allow any adaptors to give you +20 etc, the only thing i would be wary of is putting the extra load into the AMP parts, as standard AMP ran 165/140 front/rear, on the rear the swing arm might foul larger discs, as the ISO standard is 5mm closer to the caliper mount than AMP's rear hub.

Hope that all makes sense :D

Not a problem, as long as you've got one for me to take the mounting pcd off i can laser cut one for about £15 in stainless steel.
