Broken Brake shoe on eb@y

I saw this tonight on Ebay and was really quite shocked. A seller (Red Rose) has actually listed a brake shoe as spares or repair, with half the lining missing and the rest hanging off ! :o and listed for £10.99.
Ive seen second hand cambelts and clutch cables from these guys which is amusing , fair enough if folks want to buy it and they are running a business , but this is madness

To be quite honest I am speechless, confused and annoyed , why would anyone in their right mind buy this buy this piece of cr@p . A paperweight maybe .

yes, brakes can be re-lined but it is a specialist job by people who know what they are doing , never try it as a diy job , its suicidal ,I think we all know that

and if you need brakes for your MT500 , you can actually buy a pair from Sportax, LMS or Force for approx £23 or £24 +P&P. with springs . ( cheaper than a wreath)

Youve only got one neck guys - dont take a risk

rant over
