I don't feel like I'm losing my mind anymore. About 6 weeks ago,in an almost identical scenario to knicol, I suddenly found myself laying in the street. I had started a slow left turn into a residential intersection, I was maybe going 5 mph waiting for a bicycle to clear as he went the other way, in an instant I'm down. After I got the bike and myself back upright, the front brake was kind of tight, but in my banged up state, I rode it the eight of a mile home. It kind of spooked me, made me think maybe I had locked up the front brake , I don't ride daily, but it's not like I am a novice. I dinged up my hip elbow, and knee pretty good, so I didn't do much riding until the last couple weeks. Sure enough, the brakes locked up again tonight after the slightest appplication...I was ready for it this time and didn't hit the pavement...So i come on here to get some input and ....find this post...Like Knicol, this bike had sat for quite a long time, I got it for a couple hundred bucks because the stator was shot, fixed that, cleaned the carbs etc and the bike is great, as soon as i fix this brake issue...anyhow hope to hear what you find and I will post my findings .
