You have air in the system, you need to bleed it out.

No it wasn't, I apologize. It's just that when one owns an '85 they aught to have some mechanical skills and bleeding brakes is the most basics, my 17yr daughter knows that. Hard luv man, HARD LUV!!!

air can get trapped in a couple of spots and are u positive there is no leaks anywhere .. make it a point to not not barry the lever when u let the air out of the bleeder and make sure that the bleeder is all the way tight befor letting up ...
if u attach an aqaurium tube or oxygen tube tube u can see the air bubbles come out of the bleeder ...

i try and not let the master get below half. any air from the top will make u start all over again ... they make the speedy bleeders and vac pumps to assist in the bleeding process... take your time; i dunno bout u but i like havin workin brakes ... did u replace your pads too ... did u check the calipers for a good seal at the pistons also check for pitting and it may needto be rebuilt ... ( orings and pitting is hell in a high pressure hydrolic sytem ... they can deteriorate after time ..) and a little honing... if the bike sat for a long time and there's pitting in there and u pushed the caliper all the way back

good luck and keep us posted ...

I may have gone into more detail then needed but just a couple things u may want to look at...

if all u replaces was the hoses id check all the connections for good seals ... no brake fluid drips anywhere ?? or a bleeder not gettin set all the way ...
