Default Re: Scrapyard score!!!

Well I cut the hubs out of the rims to take some measurements for spokes. The rear hub was in awesome shape, a few minutes with a scotchbrite pad and it shines. Started disassembly on the front, noticed the spedo drive says "VDO Made in Germany" . I finally get down to taking the hub apart and my heart sunk. Someone must have left this moped out with the wheel underwater because the shoes came out leaving the linings laying in the hub. I cleaned everything up and tried to think of how I could bond the linings back onto the shoes when I noticed they had "Hm" and "JB H20 FF" in the casting. After a few minutes on google and ebay I have a new set of brake shoes coming from the UK for $8.09 SHIPPED!
