    Bill, let us know how it goes. I know now that my NE5 goes faster I worry about braking - I have to leave a lot of room between me and the car in front - and if I have to stop suddenly I have put the brakes to the test and put my feet on the ground like Fred Flintstone - I would love disc brakes...

    Hey Bill. Are the fork tubes the same diameter as the NE5 tubes? I am wondering if it would be possible to just order the steering stem & the upper plate to widen the forks enough to get a disk brake to fit....

    Bill, how did this come out? The guys at the Moped Army looked at my NE5 and said that a conversion to disc breaks could be easily done by replacing the drum brakes with mountain bike disc brakes. they said anywhere from 100 - 500 for those disc brakes on e-bay at any given time. let me know as the hills in sf ... starting to scare me.
