I had a disc brake on my 1st mini bike. A pushbike type brake that worked on the rear sprocket. Worked well till I oiled the chain *pull hair out*.

But wouldn't that 'caliper' work better if it was behind the fork leg? And yeah, I think some of the Harley boys go for what's called a 'sprotor'. A nice idea in some respects, but as you say, you probably want to keep lube to a minimum.
