Do you have fab skills and tools? Damien made mounts with some thick aluminum for his bike. I think they turned out better than the best manufactured mounts

like most us in this hobbie I'm pretty handy with my hands, We grew up without a lot and my dad was one hell of a repair man as i expect most our fathers had to be, but yeah I have a fairly decent shop at home though not a lot of aluminum scrap but i have plenty 1/8in metal along with various other sizes. right now im still waiting for my rims slowest delivery ever, and my calipers and 203 mm rotor
That is correct, in order to have proper clearance in most cases, the smallest rear disk brake rotor is a 203 mm whilst using a 36 tooth sprocket...It is just enough room for the caliper to fit without hitting the chain and sprocket setup as seen in pics below of my bike.

Hey dameon
 
yeah after looking things over mainly my wallet I went ahead and canceled the order for this style adaptor, like most you guys on here it didnt set right with me paying hard earned cash for something I can fab up in my small shop. or something similar anyways...
You'll find everyone here likes to save a few bucks. Besides if you make it it will bee 100 times better than one you can order
 
Hey Damien I was looking at pics you posted, thanks they really helped me a lot, as i'm more of a visual person. To me a pic is worth a thousand words, also with the advice of GW motorized and the rest of the gang here I now have a visual in my mind of whats what, where this and that goes, along with how they fight for space between the frame. with all this said if you dont mind Im gonna copyish your mount. any chance you got a thickness for the aluminum you used. I sourced various pieces from my scrap pile but am worried there either too thin or way to thick any info would help. cant wait to post pics of both my bikes on here soon as I get my rims in

Believe it or not, I just eyeball'd the bar of aluminum that was given me at the Base and just trimmed and filed things down to an exact fit...It is totally custom...lol.

I did the same thing with my front motor mount as well...lol.

And for the front brake adapter, I was given an "Adel" clamp off of an F-16 fighter jet and adapted that to work along with one of those black thing-a-ma-jig adapters that fork over both sides of the axle and secured it to the Adel clamp and caliper...Pics below for these other items...lol.

Ps...The aluminum I used was 7075 T-6 military aircraft aluminum...I don't know if your able to get ahold of that stuff per se, but any really good quality aluminum or other metal should work well.
