I'm in the market for a new fork for a beater build I have going on, and I want it to be unique.
I've by complete fluke came upon a ZZYZX fork in my town, and i'm probably going to buy it just for the "different" factor.
One problem, it doesnt have disc tabs. Now, I would imagine there is some type of clamp on you could buy on the net somewhere. Anybody know of one?
I've never seen an adapter to put disc brakes on a fork that isn't disc ready.
Oh how kewl! I remember those ZZYZX fatty mammajamma's. I wanted one sooo bad back in the day. Instead of trying to find a disc mount (probably nearly impossible) look for a set of Magura Hydro rim brakes. That's would be retro'ly delicious.

I actually have a box full of them I bought for $100 when I used to have my trials bike, but I'm really set on the disc's.
I know out of all the weird things out there there has got to be something to work.

I think I saw something far out there on the internet last year about a way to install discs in the rear on frames not equipped for disc brakes. Any ideas?
It'd be nice because I am not getting rid of my current frame until I break it in half. Everything bolted to it could go...

I know of plenty of adapters for the rear of bikes, but none for forks.
