That's an original bulb.

I run them on my Tazer and have two other front ones kicking about in the garage.

The later Bulbs were one piece with a 6 bolt IS mount. I used to run them on my Big Hit...I think they're better hubs Han the Pro II's that replaced them because they've got bigger bearings.

All of the ones I have at the mo are the old school ones with the disc carriers.

Cheers for all the feedback guys, Now I know what brakes i have, I need to know because of the spider these have on them, If i was to get hope Big Un's would this Rotor just fit straight on with no issues ?

Yes mate, the 5 bolt Hope disc rotors were the same spacing across both the Bulb/XC/Sport spiders and Big Un hubs. Will fit straight on with no issues.

Yup no issues, except a bit of minor filing may be needed...I had to file the the tabs down slightly on my rotors on the Chameleon to get them to fit on the Big Uns.
