Here is a look at my collection of small parts for the frame:
I will be using Big'Un hubs. A MkII front and a Mk1 rear to match the proportions of typical Dirt Bike hubs. I looked for 32H hubs in black or silver because those colors tend to not fade and are typical on moto's.
Levers will be Hope Mono's because I think they look the most moto like. I found some with red reservoir caps for that 'factory' look
Calipers will be Hope Mini #8 rear (found a NOS one!) and DH4 #3 front. I would like to use a DH4 #8 front, but have not been able to find one....
I found a black front hub, but the axle caps are chewed up bad and I am trying to find better ones.
The black rear hub is over in England at a new friends house. I bought some brake parts from him and he has been helping me source some other items since. Thanks Steve! The rear hub got a 12mm axle conversion and will soon have a 185 rotor to match the 205 front. I'm guessing that will all be here in 2-3 weeks.
The White Brothers fork that came on the MkII frame was too tatty for my liking. Lots of scrapes and scratches that would show through even with polishing and fresh anodizing. So it's going away and I'm working on the purchase of a cleaner one. White Brothers still use the same chassis, so they can be updated with the latest parts, making for nice modern, reliable fork.
That's about all for now. These projects move at glacial speed...
If anyone has a lead on old Rotec parts, Big'Un hubs/parts or a Hope DH4 #8 caliper, please let me know. Thanks!
