    Off-roading an hour away from the house, and the rear brake rubber line melted on the exhaust. No place seems to have the hose, I'm sure they have a hose with metric connections that is as long or longer, but of course, they don't have any way to look it up. Anyone know what will work - like an idiot I didn't take the line off to bring with me.

    Tried flat towing it, and the front wheels kept turning and locking up - is this cause of the downward angle from the tow bar to the 80?

    If this seems spacy - I'm a bit discombobulated right now...

    you need more caster if the wheel are locking.


    look in cruiser FAQ- there are some brakeline #'s in there.

    fourwheelparts can get a stainless line for the rear in a few days.

    Take a couple of bungy cords and tie the steering wheel so it will turn some but return to center and go slowly.
