You mean an adaptor to run disc brakes?

Picture would be good, but don't think this frame can accept discs.

Are, they look like old Hayes disc mounts, 22mm. A2Z and Hope do adaptors I thinks.

Hope used to do an adaptor to fit their No 1 calliper, but don't any more. A2Z still do them, but IIRC you'll have to increase the rotor size by 20mm
