Mates just been given this & yes before you ask it is as immaculate as it looks & yes I did say given
Been sat in a garage for maybe 9 years without being touched & looks shop fresh almost.
Only problem with it is the Formula rear brake was seized on, Formula dealing bike shop says can't get any spares & I can see an awful lot of faffing with the old ones & still get nowhere with them. Mate is happy to buy new brakes for it which is no problem until you come to the rear disc - it's a 140mm 4 bolt
The front is a 180 - which should be fine with modern calipers?
Was originally thinking of slapping some SLX with 180F & 160R rotors, where do I go from here? Are the Formula brakes worth messing with? Is it possible to get 160mm dia 4 bolt discs? What alternative 140mm caliper could I get for the rear?
Also, the rear sus seems to have a very slow rebound - will that most likely be sticky damper or bearing.
