I'm thinking about swapping the front stock rotors for some oversized wave rotors. Looking at the rotors, I doubt I'll be able to put the magnet anywhere on the disk itself like I have now in place on the stock rotor. Anyone know if this setup on the Baldwin prerunner bike is meant for a speedo?

looks like they may have used JBWeld or something like that to put the signal magnet on the hub and then custom built this little bracket on the fork to get the pickup into that area. Or is this something totally different?

my bike is plated, so I really would like to retain the speedo

I use the ICO unit and I did not attach my pick up magnet to the rotor, I epoxied it to the hub and located the bracket attached to the fork pinch bolts accordingly. has worked like a charm for years.
