Anyone a vintage tandem pro?

I tried in the vintage forum before without luck. I have a Mountain Goat Lombada from, I think, the early 90's. Its got a broken front hub and I'm looking for a replacement. The problem is the disk brake mounting holes are not standard and I can't slap just any old hub on. If I go to modern parts I'm changing fork, caliper, wheel and disk. I'd rather keep the vintage look and just replace the hub. Any takers?

Thanks.

Wow....Early '90s is vintage? You make me feel old. I hope you're referring to the 1890's.

That doesn't sound like a stock set-up for that bike... the disc in particular. What's the branding on the original hub and what type of disc caliper is it fitted with?
