Name Every bike with a underslung rear brake

Trying to source a donor caliper and mount if possible.
Figures I'd tap into the collective experience for the search.
If you know of one, post as much of the following as you can
Brand, model, Year, and bonus points of you know the OD of the OEM rear rotor.

In a perfect world Id locate a donor that uses a 220,mm rotor size and a caliper mount that uses a strut to keep it from rotating it, vs a swing arm slide mount.

Brand does not matter as a donor other than if you find something obscure like a 1983 DesmoLamborginie HyperSport Soft tail...it may be a bit tought to find a good used part cheaply.

Thanks in advance.

And the 1998 TL1000S lead took me to this list of other bikes that use the same caliper bracket ...Outstanding
New caliper is only $160 my cost, bracket $35
The Aprillia Tuono V4 APRC is right disk size but caliper and bracket use swingarm index slider, not a torque arm..so it's out.

THANK YOU,, great lead

So used TL1000S caliper and mount purchased for a song..to be used in markup and fitment.. If it works out I'll buy a brand new caliper as it's the same price as buying pistons and seals, all new bolts and bleeders, fittings and springs..ect.

Happy to help!

Thought the TLS would be the goods.

Hey budd, still have one to measure? I need the OD of the wheel hub that the rear caliber overhangs....

I was going to use a caliper bracket from 1998 TL1000S but the caliper when mounted correctly for contact with the disk interferes with the VTR wheel hub on that side.
So I need a caliper that is a different shape, sculpted out in that area for wheel clearance or go to a larger diameter rotor which i dont want to do as I don't use the rear brake much at all now, larger means more weight I dont want or need.
