I have had one season of riding my freshly restored 1942 wlc.
I bought it from the widow of the restorer, so my knowledge of the the bike is pretty much based on what I learn as I go....
That said, I had some brake troubles last summer.... Brakes seem to have too much travel, even when (seemingly) adjusted right and tight.
I have tried centering the rear brake shoes and even took the rear brake apart and had thicker linings put on the shoes.
Still, there is too much travel on the pedal and linkage and after one hard press on the brake, it will fade to the point of no stopping power at all.
The front brake is very near the same problem.
I ride the bike according to it's age, so it's not abuse related
Is there any good hints or even usable tricks and experiences that you can share with a Harley novice, I'd be most grateful!
