    Default Freewheel/disc brake adapters

    Is anyone out there manufacturing the freewheel and disc brake adapters for 3/4" rear axles, and willing to sell them?

    they are easy to make DIY
    a steel washer, a 3/4" steel sprocket and a 5mm tap.
    Have made numerious brake and freewheel adapters.
    For the freewheel adapters, just weld the freewheel end of a hub (the hubs are in three pressed pieces) and weld to a 3/4" steel sprocket. when purchasing the washers (1.25ID) get a sprocket with same size to aid in alignment. I have several pics posted over the years here on AZ.
    good luck
    It rains almost every day here in Washington but it isn't as COLD as Idaho

    There was a supplier in Arizona that sold 15mm freewheel adapters , 3 of these could solve your problems, machine to the id of your choice and fit rotors with the screw on adapters.

    Alternatively I used a 20mm EN51 axle and outboard discs using 20mm hubs on my quadem project . This was very effective but entailed making a modified collar to mount the freewheel and to lock one of the hubs.

    Talked with Staton-Inc last week and they ststed that They are going to start making the AZ style adapters very soon. Maybe phone calls to them for these parts will put some fire under bottoms! Call them at 405-605-3765.
