Just another item I have It's a back wheel disc brake system that I use comes with the caliper disc a new axle bearing (not shown)and the sleeve ..All you need to do is to fix it to the frame ???? Not easy to fit though ...I use a alloy plate bolted to the frame The second photo shows different size disc Here it is fitted to one of my 24 volt C5s

Have you got one of these for sale Chas? And do you make/sell the alloy plate? Would be really good for my 24V. Can you make these disc brakes on the front wheel?

Thanks Chas, I'm after some other of your bits too: light switch bracket for 2 switches and mirror brackets, I think you made some clones of these a while ago.

Hi Dan Regarding the mirror brackets I do not have any left sorry ..Regarding the switch brackets that I make have two slots in them one is slightly bigger than the other enabaling the indicator switch to fit in ..Can you let me know what you want one for ... I do make the alloy plate myself but it has to be cut out so the sprocket + the brake disc fits in as you can see in the photo Also you will have to make some small brackets to hold the caliper in place .And before fitting you will have to take off and renew the axle bearing (new bearing comes with the kit) But if you want to go ahead and have a go I can help you ...Bye Chas

Ah okay, no probs I've listed the mirrors on ebay anyway as I've now got another set with brackets.

I've done my 24v touchscreen and to make it work I've got 2 separate switches, one for the uni-8 (24v) and the other for my touchscreen circuits (12v) and I'd like to be able to turn them on/off separately so you're brackets would be perfect.  They're just normal sized switches as used for the normal c5 lights.

If you could sell me the plate that would be great, I'm not very good at metalwork Is it easy to remove the bearing/put it back on, would you give instructions? I will certainly give it a go can you give me the price?

Thanks!

Yeah you could do that I just thought it better to put them where the light switch is. Will be interesting to see yours if you do put them on the box.

Hi there Dan I could sell you a plate no problem but you would have to cut the holes out for the sprocket and the brake disc + the holes to make it lighter and cooler ..Regarding replacing the bearing they are tight and hard to remove you will need to get someone to push it off ,push the new one on ...Bye Chas
