    I would go with the 18 as Metzler makes a block K tire for this, Avon makes a 19 inch but it does not put as much rubber on the ground.

    I've been collecting parts for a Earles fork conversion with dual discs for my R80/7/Dnepr car rig.
    I'd like to see your solution for caliper mounts- fixed on welded tabs, or floating, with a stay.
