Landshark with self-designed dropouts is finished!
I designed these with a primitive CAD program and had a local machine shop cut them out of stainless steel. What I found in designing these is that slotted brake tabs are not necessary. With precise positioning of the caliper relative to the axle slot, the pads are always fully contacting the rotor.
As usual, John Slawta's fillet work is flawless, as is his paint.

Looks lovely.

However, with the brake in that position, I'd expect you to get problems with the rear wheel moving backwards (on the disc side) under sharp braking.

Any problems?

Ok, here's the rest of the bike.
The fork is an 03 SID, but I dremeled the brake posts off.

That track bike is a beauty, at first I couldn't figure out how you made a negative of the bike without changing the background!

With the big King bolts, there has been no movement. That might be a problem with a QR, but the bolts are solid. Forward movement is, of course, stopped by the adjuster screws.
