Looking for a set of brake shoes for my SLS steel wheel 68' A50.

I've found a bunch of results for the "SOK" brand that appears to be made in Taiwan. I've also found enough negative reviews to cause me to look for better versions. Klempfs has a set for $125 USD... eek Too expensive for me!

The part number is: 68-5441/3(F)

Does anyone know of any other sources for these? They appear to be less common than the Aluminum wheel versions.


Thanks

Andrew,
If you were close, I'd let you borrow a set until Steubenville....

And yes, it sure seems some of the prices for parts have gone completely ridiculous...
I guess it is supply and demand..... Stranded over a barrel.

It seems we've lost another parts dealer, the one in London..... Went by there recently, and even the bike stuck up on the pole is gone!

Thanks, chaterlea25, I will check now.

I couldn't believe it when I saw the price compared to the Aluminum wheel versions.

I ordered a set of those from Draganfly before realized what I'd done. My Dad has a 70' Thunderbolt, so he can use them on that. They apparently have them or will make them, but I'd have to ship them to the UK and wait for them to be made, presumably.

You must mean Bud Runkle's old place. He is a really nice, knowledgeable guy.
