Does the Works type front brake conversion, i.e. vented discs and
existing calipers spaced 10mm work with stock sprint alloys.

You do need a replacement longer stub axle as well. I think Ken Clarke does these.

About 15 year ago i did fit these on a sprint of mine, genuine ST discs with spaced calipers but what i do remember is that it goes on a std hub with std stub axle. The only mod was fitting twin calipers.

Thanks for the information and picture.

By deduction I'm quessing 221 diameter, 20 mm thickness
and depth O/A 36 mm.

These are not genuine ST discs Jeroen. The genuine ones were cast vented. Yours are cast solid then drilled.
