Sounds like its set for a rockshox/AMP disc brake with such narrow bolt spacing.

Does your frame have the same rear end as this one?

It looks as if defconfunk (a member on here, who owns or owned this M1) has had an adaptor made up. It looks as if it bolts into the two holes that you mention, and then allows the use of a disc brake with an IS mount..

Might be worth contacting defconfunk?

Hope this helps a bit :D

No probs :D

It should be a fairly simple thing to produce if you know of any good machine shops near you?

It's just an idea, but have you thought about getting one of these?

Perhaps you could make it fit?
