Road Test/Bike Review (1974) Bridgestone Kabuki Skyway (featuring rear disc brake)

This Road Test mentions a Mar 1974 review of the Bridgestone-patented, Shimano-manufactured disc brake similar to the one on this bike.
A copy of that article is attached in addition to this Road Test article.

Is it the light, or is that front brake pad mounted backwards?
