Default I need a nice, light 18" rear with disc, any suggestions?

Workin on a new BSA project, and I want to run a rear disc on it. Without running a really late hub, making a disc work is next to impossible on brit hubs from what I can see.

I've been looking at a bunch of different dirtbike stuff, but pretty hard to tell how wide hubs are and whatnot from a picture on EBay.

Anybody got any specific recommendations from past projects or that CR in the shed?

No seriously, give me an option. I have an inventory of maybe 15 Brit bikes, and that's it. Nothing I have here comes close to being a simple deal when you figure a rear disc into the equation. I don't have a bunch of dirt bikes sitting around collecting dust, and I wish I did, because I KNOW on the back of some Japanese dirt bike sits the wheel I need to make what I want to do easy. I don't know shit about Japanese bikes nor HD stuff, so I'll take whatever help I can get and damn the torpedoes.

Late Triumph may work, but I'm not certain.
Or how about single-flange H-D front, with a sprotor?
Trouble is, most dirt bike owners won't know about A10s. Post up the width of your frame and the distance you need between the left side axle plate and the sprocket flange.
Someone on here must have something in their garage.

Oh yeah, I guess that could be a problem....

So umm, there is no frame yet. This will be another scratch built deal like the last one. Sprocket offset and whatnot, all of that I can make work when I build the frame, I had to machine down the brake plate on the A65 wheel to work on my last build, but that sort of stuff is no biggie. I supose now that I look at my original post, without knowing what I'm doing (ie, I don't really care about specifics, because I can change them) it's a dumb question.

I mean, I don't care if it's an Ironhead Sporty or a CR 250, I'm looking for some sort of 18" rear wheel that is pretty narrow and easy to come by. Making it fit is the easy part.....I'm just sitting here looking at 54,000 pictures on EBay because there is not a good source of used bikes parts local to me. Not trying to be vauge or a pain in anyones ass, I just thought maybe someone could say "Yeah, I once had a wheel from a XT200, and it was pretty cool"

This is an 18 inch mag from a KZ1100. Not sure if you want a mag, but I'm sure they made spokes for the KZ lineup right??
