Or point me in the right direction?
This may be more of a help to you than what you were looking at as far as adaptor for the calpier bracket goes...not sure if they work with regular spoke type rims but pretty sure that they do though...Greetings from Alamogordo by the way...lol...DAMIEN

Hey neighbor! That is helpful but I am more concerned with the rear brake. I had a couple of 80 2-strokes on mountain bikes back pre-covid and honestly, they were faster than I felt safe. Those bikes are long gone. I now have a Kent Bayside I am going to put a 4-stroke 142f kit on and I am more concerned with my brakes than anything. I have mag wheels like yours (kind of, 10 spokes) with the disc brake mounts. I am wanting to (if easily possible) run a disc brake on my rear alongside the drive sprocket. It looks a bit like that is what wan37 had going on.

I'm noticing the spacer between the drive sprocket and the brake disc and the clearance of the caliper. I've never seen that before but I am also a novice.

Ok it called mag wheel adaptor then you use the the adapter that Damien is talking or the black fork ones that showed in one of these post . The best part is I can use any rotor size. I got two 160 mm on this bike.

That is a lot of realestate in between those stays in pic above. Most bikes don't have that much space.

It looks like what you posted is made for the spoke clamp sprocket. But it did lead me to this, which is what I think would work like what you have. https://www.ebay.com/itm/283872459035
