had a reply from Hope today

"Hi, sorry we don't have anything like that. The best thing to do is have
a frame builder weld on a mount. Cheers"

ah well, was worth a try
don't fancy the welding option though
brake therapy is looking more likely (need to sell a bit more first though)

funny you should say that my local spec dealer got back to me aswell.

"Hi,
I do know the part you are looking for, but unfortunately I haven't seen one of those in years now.
It's the kind of thing that we would probably never throw away, just in case. So maybe there is a specialized dealer somewhere that has one."

the search goes on.

i'm more of the mind of keeping things as they should be.
the seat stay on my FSR is less than pretty but i wouldn't consider ruining some retro goodness just so i could run it with discs.

especially as they did make the disc adapters :P
