    What you do is either source a px disc front end on the likes of ebay or sometimes if your lucky scrapyards depending on condition ect ect.
    I got most of mine from ebay bit by bit for cheap.

    Or you buy brand new from sip/sck or the likes for summet daft like £300. you get a semi hydraulic master cylinder with this...which I dont really rate. I had mega issues with mine.

    The best thing to do is get a handlebar master cylinder. the popular conversion is the obvious Px disc M/c. or if you want to keep the original handlebar look with decent braking, use a piaggio typhoon semi hydraulic m/c.

    hope this helps
