My front brake has rattled since I bought the bike.
Today I figured time to clean out the calipers and found I was missing the small spring from each side

Amazing the image has uploaded. the part numbered 8 spring pad are both missing; is this likely to be the cause of the rattle?

Remember I know nothing ......

I would not like to ride any bike with a known brake issue, David Silver should be able to quickly get you the part.

Planning on ordering them tonight.
I ordered this very part from my LBS along with other OE parts and he in turn gets them from David Silver, they are (or were last Wednesday) out of stock on this item.

While you're ordering this part you might want to check the pad pin, mine was a right [email protected] to get out, I had to get a blow torch on it...

Pad pins were nicely greased and the little caps, a nice surprise seeing the strange way the brakes had been serviced.
A previous owner had topped up the fluid without removing the rubber diaphragm in the master cylinder, in effect had not topped it up at all.
Am also ordering a master cylinder rebuild it.
