Anyway... I have all the chopped hardware from the frame, but this will be a nice and functional bike - a true fireroad/dirt road bike + It is a fun project...
So it's not even going to be ridden off road properly? And you feel the need to fit discs for a gravel road? Canti's, even just a foot on the tyre, are good enough for fire roads [/sigh]
If you are going to butcher a classic frame then at least pay it some respect and thrash it on some proper off road.
PS I am not altering the frame(!) only modifieing the brakes. The frame is as it always been. Just like a modified 1965 SWB Porsche 912 being fitted with newer and better brakes
But for the Porsche it's just a reversible bolt on job and it doesn't affect the essential character and look of the car. Its not a direct comparison.
At the end of the day it's your bike and you can do what you like but if you chop and change a rare classic bike frame for no good reason you're gonna be getting some stick about it!!!
