found one. a bit pricey but fairly rare. The plan is to capture it to the swing arm to make wheel changes much easier.

What made you pick 64mm over 84mm? Using a fancy caliper?

I was able to get my hands on the Brembo P2.34 caliper. Its a bit smaller and lighter but the biggest reason was it was donated to the cause. Can't beat that with a stick.

The back side with the shelf to hold the wheel in place when feeding the axle in.

that's all fine and dandy, but what holds the bracket in place?

i'm going to be making my bracket captive right away here. just trying to find the best way to do it. a lot of people will just fasten the axle block to the bracket, but this doesn't allow you to pull the block out of the way and slide the axle all the way forward to pull the chain off. i'm looking at options for fastening the bracket to the swingarm. i'm thinking of just milling a slot in the bracket and then putting a bolt through the top of the swingarm bracket to engage the slot.

we'll see though.
