Shot Hub

I had noticed a lot of play in the rear passenger wheel. Mark Jr and I pulled the brake off tonight and found a minor disaster: Bearing races shot and the brake pad worn at about a 10 degree angle. Andy and Paul had struggled to get this hub assembled solidly last year and I now question if it was already damaged and ever possible. I'm glad the wheel didn't fall of at Altamont, but anyway it shouldn't be too tough to repair. Paul let me check fit with an '85 hub assembly he had handy. The hub itself may fit but the housing does not mate to the suspension. Time for parts shopping.
