It looks like someone has copied the REspeed brake conversions kits and they are available on eBay now.

I just spotted this:

I saw these. Shame it won't fit under 14's! I should try to find a little upgrade that will at some point :lol:

I'm pretty sure people have fitted FC brakes under 14"s but I imagine disc diameter is important, some people may use larger discs and different brackets.

Looks excellent, great to see some home brew machining work! It's been years since I've been on the handles!
