Yes, that's John's eBay auction ("B3" on this thread).

As you can see from the photos, I've got one and I'm absolutely chuffed with it. You'll find that you might have to remove a little bit of ali with a small file to ensure that it's snug to the mounts on your particular forks, but after that, you're good to go... :)

Hi


I recently decided to go retro (in as far as buying a pair of 1997-ish Z1s which are what i used when i was in to hardcore biking back in the day). Nostalgia and boredom prompted me to buy a pair of Z1s again in 2011.

I have purchased one of the CNC disc mount adapters from Retrobike user 'B3' and i'm very happy with it. Just need to decide if i'm happy with the Z1s as I need stiffer springs and they are shorter (not enough to affect much though) and have less travel than the Suntour Forks they have replaced. I swapped from brand new Suntour XCR LO forks to a 1997 fork lol.

Do you think the 1997 Bomber Z1 is better than a modern Suntour XCR LO fork?

Anyway, just a couple of pics to show an old non-standard disc mount fork with a modern disc caliper.
