He probably meant laconic - complete waste of money in my opinion but if someone can see a market for this in a few years time, it may be a shrewd move,.

Could be the ultra rare front disk brake - never seen that design before. The caliper is on the left leg and the disk on the right... :shock:

A guy i used to ride with had one.
He hated it, broke it up and put the kit on something worthwhile. Think the frame forks and wheels sat in his garage for several years.
