Hope do them I think. Ask Serotta if they would be willing to do the work, how much it would cost etc first because you may find its cheaper to buy a frame with disc mounts already! Maybe you could source them in the states and get them sent direct, or do you have a local framebuilder near you?
I'm pretty sure Bob Jackson gets his from Hope.

I found these from PARAGON

i have send them an email if they could help me out, and i send them the discmount.
Honestly,..i think they owe me because i had to pay 240 euro to get the frame back to the factory, which they do not want me to refund me,..although it is warranty,...

That frame is not designed for use with discbrakes. Maybe it doesn't handle the forces very well and it will crack near the dropout. Soon circulate the pics on the web again and guess who gets all the blame: Serotta. They will be fools if they helped you out. Kind fools, but fools.

I went for the green 8) looks proper retro. 1,2,3+5 look too modern, you would be as well buying a new bike with disc mounts.

They do not want to do this, as you said.
no worries.

I still do not know what paint I want; I just received an email from my new Serotta friend Russ that they want to offer me a special paint scheme because I had to make 248 euro shipping costs.
I am almost as far to tell them; surprise me! I do not know! ;)
