Just in case anyone is still reading this thread, I made a caliper bracket, but was not happy with the proximity of the nuts holding the caliper to it.

So, I managed to source a TTR front hub from the US (good price too amazinglysmile ) and laced my 17" front rim on to it. Spoke lines aren't brilliant due to the nipples wanting to point at the spoke position on the original hub, but it's acceptable with a little "relieving" and fits perfectly smile

Also turns out that Conti trail attack2 are not available in 120/90 17 for thee front, only the rear so the supplier just sent me a rear without any notification. This is a problem as the tyre is directional and has a "rear>" marking on it, so I was confused hmm I didn't realise until I came to fit it, and did loads of research without finding an answer, so fitted it reverse way round thinking that would probably be best. Just today Martyn on here found a manual for me that shows a picture of a bike on the front cover with a trail attack on the front and the tread goes the same way I have fitted mine so good news, I think smile
