Brake shoes seized to drum
« on: August 20, 2018, 11:42:23 AM »
After about 10 months of my last XS650 purchase sitting neglected in my driveway, I decided I needed to move it some where that did not make my home look so trashy.  However, the rear wheel was seized and I could not roll it.  I tore into the project this weekend.



It turns out the brake shoe material was seized to the drum.



I had to make a special chisel to carve it out.

Once removed, I was able to re-assemble the wheel on the bike and park/hide it in my back yard.

Peace & Grease, Dennis
