whats up with the old brakes ? they for sale :twisted: :lol: :lol:

:lol:

Old brakes are needing the levers serviced, been with Willy Bain for a couple of weeks (i told him there was no rush), read on here somewhere rebuild kits are'nt available for the old pot levers, Hope's web site says not all spares are available for the older brakes, tried phoning Hope last Saturday morning, could'nt get an answer, lost patience and bought the Mono 6's on Monday night :lol:, you can have them if you want, would'nt want a lot, will be just the levers and calipers as i'm keeping the Goodridge hoses for the six pots.

"ohh your here ,i've got something for you " heads out to his van
son then explanins he's here to put a picture up
"here " says bob ,handing me a brown envelope
i open it to find some MBUK mint sauce (blue/purple ) stickers
i feel a bit overcome "found them a few weeks ago keep forgeting about them"

Going for 203's front and rear, got a pair with the old brakes and have another pair with the six pots, just going to run solids for now.

Will let you know when the old calipers are available and we'll sort something out though :wink:
