theres no much work involved there :oops: just some 10mm flatbar add some holes and some weld and boabs your uncle :lol: :lol: :lol:

the caliper had to sit quite far back due to where it bolts onto the mount and i only have 5mm rods here :oops: so needed to give it some room so i wasnt filling the holes back in :lol:

now i need to find out what size the thread is on m10 brake bosses for the bolts as them m10's i have there are the wrong thread and just sitting in the first thread in the frame to hold the mount in place.......

still need to trim/shape it too........

Ha ha ZZ your a hoot! Powdercoat the muther you know it makes sense- a nice green colour would be grand.

Commuter might be an option but I really need to stay away from bikes it's an expensive habit :lol:

Funnily enough, green's the theme for the GT, decals and bolts, etc. But I'll give the polishing a bash and see where it goes.

I'm voting fixie for your next project... and a pair of hipsters of course.
