They are but appear new with no cracking. I have located replacements in spite of their condition.

It is not hydraulic though. It is a cable operated caliper.

A golden bike from the golden age.
What are the odds?

I tried to review the bike's life: 's been produced, ridden around the block, and then stored carefully for 455 Moons to be found, mint fresh, by you.
Divine.

I'm only not too happy with the cases: a bit too 80's.

I actually purchased the cases. The bike just happened to be included.

Idaho has plenty of scenic 2 lane highway to explore. It's going to be a great summer.
