This is how I got a disk brake front wheel for my upcoming Tomahawk project: http://stlouis.craigslist.org/bik/1978298784.html

I pretty much pitched the rest of the bike after I cut off the caliper mounts and pulled off the re-usable parts. These things are extremely heavy, but I would have killed to have one as a kid !!

Something to keep an eye out for. :1eye:

Sorry for the previous posting - Here is a photo of the type of bike I got the 20" wheel w/ disk brake from for the front of the Tomahawk... these pop up on Craig's List fairly often around here for around $50.

Now if I could just get a cheap source for the rear 26" wheel...

I've got one of those.....just missing the rear wheel.
Well worth the price, for the wheels alone.
