Sorry to add another front brake switch not making query, but can someone please confirm that the spring has not corroded away, sorry itís a naff mobile photo, but the spring ends 6mm from the end of the pin is this correct? there was a lot of rusty liquid within the pin area behind the seal and I'm wondering if its disappeared. I feel that the spring isnít even making the rod reaching the lever.
Iíve looked at solutions; zip tie, screw in the lever socket, Iíve even padded it out the socket with tin foil, they all work but Iím worried about heat expansion and the probability of the brakes engaging automatically.
I know these are old bikes now and are worth a bodge (Iím good at this) but there are some things I always try fix properly and brakes are one of them.
