  1. Wanted: Old Front Brake Discs

    For Sale / Wanted
    A strange request I know, but does anyone have any old front brake discs for an RD04 lying around? I’m upcycling an unserviceable front wheel into a clock for my garage and I think it’ll look better with a disc on it. Happy to pay for postage. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
