Thats a very healthy engine if its at the back wheel.
If the brake lines are standard they need replacing.

Yes, that is at the rear wheel. I will check the brake lines. I assume the originals were rubber hoses?

Congrats on the SB6. Looking forward to seeing it after you've done your magic to it.

Thanks Ray, I assume you are referring to my Ducati builds. This one will just be mechanical, not much cosmetically. While I'm not totally in love with the non-standard paint job, it just isn't worth the cost to put it back to original for me.

This one is all about the riding so the cosmetics will be up to someone else down the road.

Bimota used to always fit ss braided brake lines from new.....some folk do find that the T union on the 1:2 front brake line can fail after time...lines crimped onto a T connecter...evidently lines will be 22 years old by now if original

Was thinking more along the lines of the GSX-R750 build especially since it is going to be a rider.
