To mount modern ISO calipers to frame and fork.
Does anyone have? or know where I can find?

Happy to pay,
Thanks much,

TC

A stepped plate would be cleaner and eliminate the spacers, but here's the dimensions. Just need to find a CNC guy that's bored at work who'll work for scotch.

Thank you FMJ, that will help. I think I'll kick it up a notch and make mine post mount.

FMJ - what are we looking at in tat drawing? Adapter madefrom single piece of 6 mm alloy - should be fairly easy to make that at home without CNC if one has a drill press, a saw and file and lots of spare time - are there 2 bushes to offset the adapter/calliper?

I've made loads of these in the past, didn't think that there were still people who needed them :wink:

See this thread for the early ones viewtopic.php?f=1&t=108600&hilit=amp+disc the next batch were going to be post mount, but other things seem to have got in the way.

I've run one of Jon (B3)'s ones for the back for a few years...excellent, thanks. :D

But I made my own for the front:
I used the drawing which FMJ has posted for the hole locations, but made it with 4mm stainless steel.
This way it's a bit neater as you don't need the 10mm tubular spacers. You mount it on the inside face of the AMP disc tab instead.

I'll do a pic tonight.

Here (courtesy of Hayes) is the front 160mm postmount standard if you prefer. It should allow a far more chunky aluminium adapter to be made, as the bolt centreline matches the dropout face, about 8mm from the AMP tab face.

All the best,

Sure you could. Would it be right? I doubt it. Probably get it close enough to get it to work with a bit of cursing, though. I like to do things right, first time, no (well, minimal) cursing. Force of habit, I guess.

Not elegant, but here's the one I made earlier:

Used the "make that at home without CNC if one has a drill press, a saw and file and lots of spare time" method mentioned above...

All the best,
