RD350 with a rear disc brake
« on: January 22, 2021, 07:58:03 PM »
Following on from a conversation 5ports RD350Track Bike Build, I have posted a couple of photos showing the disc conversion on my 1974 RD350

Edit
Added a photograph showing the rear wheel

A tidy set up! Have you got a pic further away of the rear end showing the disc mounted as well?

Originally it had an E swinging arm, caliper and cast wheel, I believe the master cylinder is from a D.
In the photographs above, it now has a C spoked/disc wheel
