Looks like stock brakes too. It ought to stop like someone threw an anchor out of the hack

Looking at Lyndall brake pads, or hawg halters for the sportster too since I'm talking about brakes.

It's what I do... I'm not sure I've EVER made money on a bike. Especially one sold to an ADV'er. Normally when I sell one I look at what I've got in it and go HOLY SHIT! I'll never get that for it, and price it to sell quickly.

Makes it easy, and I pass on a good deal to a brother. I work to make money so I don't have to try to bend an ADV'er over when I get tired of a bike or the ink on the title dries...
