There must be air in there - maybe they did some bozo move when the wheel was off - what's the brake fluid level look like?

The only time I've had spokes loosen is on dirt bikes. I've had many street bikes with wire spoke wheels also, but none of the street bikes were new when I got them.
Yeah, she's been riding 43 years, said the brake was firm, as expected before the debacle began. They must have, for some unknown reason, opened the line and not properly bled it.
Too much is just barely enough.....
