they wont be IS mounts, thats for definite, back then there were a few competing standards.

No, you're quite right. The guy in my LBS thinks that my only option is to buy some new forks.


DO NOT DO THAT JUST YET
I have Z1 Bomber, 1996 vintage. I am working with B2 (member on this forum) to get some adapters made up to convert to IS mount.

We are at the last stages, I'll be making hopefully the final template to check all fits then B1 will bang out a few ..... :lol:

It's true, I should have some adaptors to mount IS standard calipers to Z1 & Z2's in the next couple of weeks.

You can redrill the upper hole closer to the fork leg to get the 51mm spacing, but you will then need to use a 177mm disc.

a) I'm not a member of BikeRadar
b) They can't buy anything yet!

;) :)

Do you think you'll sell the adapters painted, powder-coated or without a finish?
