I think Mike is refering to the caliper carriers not the MM design axle adaptor plates.

Hi guys,
I've been a member on the forum for a while, but never posted, as was going to do this conversion a while back but funds/time etc didn't allow it to happen.
I'm now half way through the conversion(purchasing the bits and all stripped down) and was wondering if the mk2 alli mounting plates made by saddlebags, were still available for sale? I've gone right through this thread for info, and none of the photos/files in the earlier posts show up on my iPad. Do I need to use a pc to see them?
Did anyone ever do a compatibility list for calipers and carriers from other vehicles other than VW golf, as it looked like it was getting somewhere in earlier posts.
Many thanks for the info shared previously.

Hello -& welcome Smiley
It's probably 15 - 20 years since I came up with the original conversion & later wrote an article on it for 100%Biker magazine.
I have a notoriously bad memory & genuinely can't remember much about it now. There were other makes & models suggested by various forum members -I seem to recall VW Passat being mentioned.
I really only used the Nova/Golf combo because it was what I had to hand at the time & it fitted. Any disc with the right PCD & any caliper that fits that disc & has an integral handbrake mechanism would do.
Mr SaddleBags lives in Basingstoke, Hampshire & works for a local engineering company. He's long since moved on from trikes to sports bikes, so I doubt he still has any plates available, but I can certainly contact him & ask.
Anybody have any advice for Mr Skunk?

I've just had a rummage & found these.
Someone on the forum -I'm sorry, I really can't remember who, drew up a full size template for the carrier plates. I also have a CD which presumably has the same info on it, (it's labelled PDF/JPEG caliper bracket).
If you message me your address I can post you one of the print outs, or the CD if you need it.

Hi Mr MM,
Thanks for replying, I wasn't sure if anyone would be following this anymore.lol. I think you inspired a nation of trikers with the conversion. I'd be very grateful for the info, or if it's possible to get hold of the mk2 ones or plans, via saddlebags, that would be great. My wife's trike was originally based around a Suzuki GS 850, but now has a GSX1100 G motor. I'll pm you my address.

I guess that would be right about the Passat ones - when I had a caliper break on my Passat we replaced it with a Golf one so they were clearly very similar.
