they will be although I should give Mr Colley first dibs as he said he wanted them back in September. The discs and pads saw use at Curborough only and were brand new before that costing many ££££££££

So what’s the donor for these discs? Oh and what’s the OD?

I’m using 250mm od with mine, but I reckon 254/258 could be better.
