OK , just love this bike and what can be modified on it , first it was changing the swing arm bushes for needle roller bearings , then rear shock change from ODS shock to a risse , then the Gervin fork changed for the Look Fournales fork , and now for the last Mod done is V brakes changed for good old hope discs ,

That's probably as far as you can go.

Did you weld the rear disc calliper to the swing arm yourself?
