Riot front brakes

Afternoon all!
Had a quick search, can't find anything easily...

What are the front discs off on an original Riot? Is it Capri solids?

The original builder thought it a good idea to drill the discs, literally no wear on them and they are full of cracks already :-/
Also front bearing, again Capri? What year etc

Thanks all for your wealth of knowledge

Phil

Possibly no help.....But my Sylva J15 fronts, are apparently the same as caterham, which were based on a triumph herald. Worth checking.

Hi
As Jenko said for me as well, but the Herald uprights (Caterham) were a later edition, might be worth checking out the Riot build manual should be on the Sylva website think its Fiesta Mk 4,
Sorry my Fiesta Mk 4 Haynes is in the garage (not here) for disc size.

Apologies
It may be Capri ? my builds taken so long i cant think back that far !
I think it needs a picture so someone can recognise them, i have a set of Fiesta Mk 4s in the garage as i was collecting parts prior to the build but i can remember talking with JP about a firm called Capri Gear here in Lincs so the originals could have been Capri.
