This disc brake conversion is all but finished. Only a little brightening of the metal and a coat of etch prime left to do. I've already mocked it up with the wheel and caliper and the length of the slots allows for plenty of axle travel.
Finally have the non drive side chain stay fitted for brazing, less the pinching. I'm a bit preoccupied with the internal geared, disc brake, belt drive frame I'm going to build next. Trying to think of a creative belt removal method.
These are the Pacenti chain stays with the preformed dropout end. They look good, even if a little mass produced looking. However, I have to know the inside of the stay is bright and shiny before brazing. I will grind the preformed area out so I can clean the I.D. of the stay.
