View Full Version : adding disc brakes

11-02-2010, 8:51 PM
So I am asking if anyone knows of a easy way to put disc brakes on a 72 bonnie? In my newbie mind set I would love to have a disc up front and out back, but not sure how to go about doing it. Am I able to buy a spoke wheel from a newer model and swap in or do I need to make more changes? I realize that there has to be somewhere to mount up front the caliper, just not sure where to start. Thanks for any help. nick

You can swap the front end for a '74 and up Triumph front end. Swap the rear wheel for a '78 -82.

Or use a jap front end and make bearing spacers or a new stem.
