You could lace a dual disc front hub to a 19" flanged alloy wheel without much issue. Though, you'd add some work in to the equation with getting the brake calipers lined up and all.

I just need to find out which bikes have spoked wheels and twin discs, not too many I would imagine.

I am open to suggestions of other donor bikes which would make good trackers, I can modify frames easily so I'm not looking for something just to bolt parts on.  Main criteria is twin cylinder parallel or V and must be cheap (under $1.5k) not interested in xs650 though.

Grab a hub from a Honda CB, 70's era. They are 6 hole pattern that is shared with more modern rotors from Ducati and Yamaha. That would allow you to run dual disc up front, though for a tracker, go with a big single disc and a good 6 piston caliper. That will be plenty of stopping power, especially since you are running dirt track tires, you dont want TOO much brake.

FT500 is a great tracker base and once was a popular flat track donor.  Personally, I prefer the thumper route, and an FT500 is one at the top of my list for a next build.

Kz750 twin, cb500, vt500, ex500, sv650, etc.  Depends on how new you want to go and how much work you want to do.

That kz750 or the vt500 looks like a good option.  The frames on both of those look real easy to work with.

I like singles, I race one :)  but my boy wants a twin so that's the route we'll go :)

Any reason for sticking with a four stroke?
Plenty of fun 2 stroke twins also

I saw a nice RD350 tracker in Daytona a few years back. The builder used Harley 40 spoke aluminum hubs laced to 19" rims.  Easy to find and pretty cheap.
