For quite some time the Aprilia front left brake has been grabbing on light application but pulling straight on hard application.  I had looked at it a few months ago and saw nothing obvious but decided to have another look this afternoon.    I looked hard, probes with a screwdriver and look what happened!   Disgraceful, they were only bonded on about 30 years ago.  Fortunately, I have some old-fashioned riveted ones (new only about 40 years ago and unused).

For our Aurelias I use:

Industrial Brakes Ltd
 14-15 Webner Industrial Estate
 Ettingshall Road
 Wolverhampton, UK
 WV2 2LD

Tel: 01902 492337
Fax: 01902 404420
Email: sales@industrialbrakes.co.uk

Excellent service, pleasant people, reasonable prices.

I specify the material to be used and also that the linings are bonded AND riveted.

On my 3rd Series B20, linings last less than a full season and on the one occasion I used a supplier near to home due to time pressures mid season, they could only bond the new linings ( I didn't have any rivets) and the linings detached after 2 x  30 min races. Disaster!

I have used Industrial Brakes for an epicyclic gear band lining for my vintage Trojan and they were extremely helpful. I had had to make a new band.
However I have no knowledge of the correct lining material (see Aurelia thread) so I will see where this one takes me.

Tony,
As I said in the Aurelian master cylinder thread, I am away at present but I will give you the code for the brake lining material I use when I return.

I agree.  I sent them the shoes requesting that they rivetted on linings of the same thickness as the old ones (which were about 5mm).  They came back bonded and 1/4" thick which is 6.5mm and will not go in the drum.  However, I rang them up and sent them the shoes back and they have rivetted them and ground them down to size free of charge and all within a few days.  Moral - be absolutely clear what you want them to do and you will get a rapid and inexpensive service.
