Add Front Disc Brakes to Your Traction Avant

Pierre Duperray in France will soon be offering a front disc brake conversion for the Traction Avant.

You may remember him as we have covered in the past his creating 4 speed gearboxes for both 4 cyl and 6 cyl Tractions.

He is currently preparing to fit disc brakes for on his Traction 11BL.

Pierre says that the assembly is very easy to install. And the cost?

  • Brake calipers and pads = 500€ (2 sets) — manufactured by Wilwood.
  • 2 Discs = 150€ (Audi)
  • Flexible Brake Hoses = 80€
  • Machining = 300€ (part with first laser cut)

Total: about 1,000€

Pierre thinks that this solution is also possible for the 15-6, though it will be necessary to modify the hub.

If you would like more info or to purchase his modification, contact Pierre at:
