    how to get front disk brakes on an old 3 speed

    I am going to build up an old Canadian rebadged Raleigh 3 speed. It will be my first attempt at a build up. Assuming I can get the stuck seatpost and stem loose. What are my options for getting a disk brake on the front? Are there replacement forks available or should I try to braze on the mounts?
    Thanks

    Ha! Sorry, couldn't resist. You could use all of the above factors in abundance, or you could just buy a bike with disk brakes.

    You could probably get a new fork, but it will be threadless if it has disc mounts. You'd have to get new headset and stem as well. Doesn't seem too worthwhile on an old bike.
