Where do you get the Adel clamp from?
I was going to take it to Midas have some tabs welded on.
It is from an F-16 fighter jet...It really and truly is.


On July 21st, in utter frustration, I said in a longer message to you, (quoted in boxes at end of this post), Telling you the same thing that everyone else was telling you, that magneto lighting just doesnt work and giving you other recommendation instead, and as usual, you just have every reason in the world why this or that just can't work for you even though the majority of us don't seem to have all these problems that you seem to have with these CGs and accessories.

I came to the conclusion that there is nothing i can say or do to be of any help to you as you have a self-defeating mindset that also just doesnt listen when good advice is given.

This is what i said to you then;
I dont see much hope in recommending anything to you since you already have your mind made up.....
Do what you want to do...Im totally done helping with any recommendations with you because you just dont listen to people with real world, actual,
experience on almost everything you have ever asked here in the forums as regarding these bikes and accessories...Good luck to you in your future endeavours...DAMIEN

Bikebury tried to bury me offering me totally defective brake rotors only about 2mm pinch this here is 3 mm bigger and it's still only about 4 mm maybe another mill more. And bikebury won't respond to my solution request get me the right s**t.
Anyone got a link to an inexpensive 220 mm? Found one reasonable found one for $16.00 but the seller was blocked for some reason most rotors are in $40.00 + and they fit stuff like ATVs and that's 6 M4 bolts.

If you're not an AMT like me (these kinds of parts seem to follow me home in my pockets), they can be ordered from various aircraft parts houses. Here's a link to one such place. These Adel clamps go all the way up to 3 1/8 in. Hope that helps.

Hehehehehe...I've got a buddy on base where the F-16s and military drones are plentiful...The "Adel" clamps solve many little problems, like how to attach a front disk brake caliper to a bike frame that wasn't made for disk brakes...lol.

Also the 7075 T-6 aviation grade aluminum is the greatest for making your own rear disk brake caliper to frame adaptor as well...lol.

Also made my front motor mount from the same stuff...lol...DAMIEN

@DAMIEN1307 Are you still running that caliper adapter in the front or are you using the one like you have in the rear?

I will be converting a bike from caliper brakes to disc brakes (through aftermarket adapters) as soon as all my parts come in. I will try to photojournal what I do when the time comes. Hopefully, it all works. I am going to try two different rear wheel setups, one I am less hopeful about. One is a 56 tooth sprocket with a 160mm brake rotor and the other is a 36 tooth sprocket with a 203mm rotor.
