im thinking mounting points for calipers for discs

That looks like it might be the right spacing for the original Amp disc brake? What's the frame?

Could i ask you a favor :?:

Could you measure the distance from the seat stay pivot bolt holes to the centre of the canti stud mounts.

I think the guy that welded the new stay ends on mine has inadvertantly shortened them :?: :roll:

so you mean from the centre of the top holes to the centre of the canti studs
that measures 123mm
or 195mm from canti studs to btm holes
or 318mm top to btm holes
does this help
