You will have to buy an adaptor. Depending on what fork you have.

Its a small piece of aluminum that attaches to the fork. Runs about 30 cdn I think

it mounts to the fork to allow the caliper to attach to the fork.

Well, most brake manuf. will include an adaptor with their brakes or will provide you with the info you need.
Call the shop (or online retailer) and ask if one comes with the brakes.
I would think if you get an 8" rotor and caliper kit, it should come with the necessary adapter.
