My V92C has been sitting for about six years before i acquired it....So I finish up my V92C this last week, Thought that I covered everything.
Drove it home from my paint shop and had no problems. Woke up the next morning and put new back breaks on then added some break fluid to the front master cylinder but did not change the pads, "Didn't think it needed them." While driving to the shop about 3 miles into my trip the front breaks lock up and I go down. Really Really sucked!!! Anyone know what might be the case?
Thanks for your help in advance.....

Here is my facebook album of progress over the last year...

Carl after sitting for six years the calipers nay have gotten rusted and locked up. inspect the movement and see. good luck with the bike.

why not just bleed the brakes and put new fluid into the system. A gravity feed would probably work. Just don't let the master cylinder go dry. then see if the calipers are rusted and they are moving properly in and out.
