prob #2....hand brake not holding ,cable and adjustment is okay as with pads ,is there any thing that can seize up in the caliper to cause this..
been a vt fan since they were new but this is the first time i have been able to get one (she needs a bit of cleaning up as it has done a few ks but is straight and tidy (paint ,body and under carrage is all good..
