My brakes slowly bind up when riding. I have bled them over and over, rebuilt the master cylinder, rebuilt the rear caliper, capped (bypassed the splitter that sends fluid to both brakes (eliminating the front) to see if it was in the front or back (and it must be in the back) but I'm not sure what to do next- Any suggestions?

It's on a 1983 Aspencade-

Thanks,
Drew

Did you rebuild the caliper or buy one rebuilt already? The piston seals do have a specific way of going in as they should have a slight bevel edge to the which the bevel aids in releasing the piston or drawing the piston back when brake pressure is released.

I'm a shadetree guy and I'll bet you're right- I figured it had to be either the caliper or master cylinder since those were the only things I touched!!

Thanks,
Drew
