    Hey guys Ive got an old 75 yamaha DT 250, and i was wondering if theres anything to do with the brakes in the hub (brake lining)
    Or would it be better to look for another hub/wheel?

    look for another hub. relining hub is doable (basically a cylinder liner is pressed into the hub), but the cost is way more than finding another wheel.

    Well the bad thing is, i think i need a whole wheel to :-( the bead is pitted through with rust in a couple spots, i called Buchanan wheel today and they said probably $400 for spokes and rims and Thats reusing the hub i have, i havent actually measured it yet, i was just asking to get general info, thank you very much
