Did you have the disc mount welded on then? I have a 99 Xircuit and its a fantastic ride, with handling like no other bike. Really sharp around tight switchbacks, yet holds a line at speed well too and so comfy.

They came with discs , but were specially designed for Formula early brakes .

I bought the frame of Elma and he had the proper tab fitted .

These really do handle well. If you flick the top tubes, they ring for ages, I've had some tasty stuff over the years, DeKerf, Sadoffs, Yeti's, Rm's, Merlins, Litespeeds etc and these take some beating for handling and ride quality, the geometry is well sorted.
