The rear underslung brackets that used to be on Ebay were not good at all and eventually withdrawn I think. I'd be careful of these, as we don't know the quality of material, fit, etc.
Failed front brake mountings could be catastrophic.

I agree with Stig, " made in Taiwan " does not give me any comfort thinking that crap metal is holding my front stoppers on under full load of going into a corner - last thing I want to be worried about.

I went with these



The real deaL, Thanks to SBKdrew.


But for the real option for OEM forks - Go with Style and Performance Fork Bottoms.

RC51parts.com used to sell brackets for 108mm radial calipers - not sure if they're still available? I have a set (Which used to be on my bike).

Yeah I sold them last year after a meltdown with a certain nobody.

Subsailor bought them at a great price.

He still has them I do believe.

Reminds me of a certain wheel manufacturer in the Philippines who make fake wheels (Copied from Japanese designs) for cars. People who have them say they're "spot on" too!
