Just a note....when doing yer rear shoes (and this goes for ANY bike), before re-assembling, take a piece of fine emery cloth, and make diagonal cross hatches all the way around the drum...then go the other way, and reverse the crosshatches...this removes any non metal glazing that may have occured if your drum had ever gotten grease/oil into it.....this is similar to "cutting drums" on a car with drum brakes....very important.
I mount a long bolt in a bench vise that is same as axle. Toss the wheel onto there with the open drum out. First, a few revs around with the emery. Second, crosshatched right, third, crosshatched left. Trust me. It helps a lot.
