Or get an old frame, chop em, and then take the frame n mounts to a welding shop (With a TIG welder, it works soooo much better) and ask if they can put em on for you. MEASURE and locate where the mounts should go though. Make sure you line them up PERFECTLY. They may come out shitty, and your brakes wouldnt work well. Put your wheel in where you would ride it, and put the brake arms on the mounts, and line them up by hand. Use a marker or something to scratch where they should go. (Don't get all bitter about the scratches, the weld will burn some paint off too, assuming the guy welding it doesnt grind it off first.) Also, you will want a barrel adjuster mount too, so you can fine tune those brakes. I recommend having them put on the seat stays.

get these and get a professorial welder to do it and you most find were they have to be place on the seat stay and they have to be leveled with each other


put them on the seat stay not the chain stay


but if you buy the frame of dans u can get it with out or with brake mounts but you bought it off a frined


or a brake plate but thats adds weight
