i did the same ,one of the calipers are really gd but one needs a new seal kit,i've done it more for the look,but i really like the idea of calipers on the back rather than cans,cans remind me of chopper bikes

That would be cool Smile

I'm sure we could sort something at Tinklers to change it all over on a Saturday? Much easier on a ramp

Yeah did it on the ramp.

As long as you have all the parts it won;t take long at all...just make sure you have the flexi pipes to go with those calipers too Smile They will be mk2 rear ones if that's what the calipers are.

When would you want to do it?

We can fit them but not make them.

If you order them see if you can do a mix and match between mk1 and mk2
