Mark’s Repair…When The Brakes Don’t Work

Another Craigslist find…Mark called me with a bike he bought that was having brake problems. Although you can’t tell it from th pics, there were almost no miles on the bike. Apparently the old owner put the kit on and messed up with the rear hub assembly.

I had a tub full of old parts and whatnot, but not the right brake arm. But, I was able to use a hammer and anvil to get the parts in somewhat of a usable condition, and when I put it all together it worked fine…just a fair warning:

Sometimes I can do little things like this to get you back on the road, but these repairs come without guarantee, and a stern recommendation to replace whatever parts are affected.
