I sent my brakes to Friction materials. They did a great job and fast turn around


Hi Rich, I have a local brake shop here in my town that uses what I believe is
similar "woven" material that has strands of brass (I believe) in it so it looks
pretty correct. I used it on my 2012 Cannonball Henderson and it worked very
well and I did not wear it out. It is riveted to the external bands. It cost me
somewhere in the neighborhood of $50.

I am working on a 1924 Deluxe with the external brake band and the internal
brake band. I need to reline each one. What are people's experience with linings
and rivet vs bonded. Does anyone have any recommendation on anyone they
trust to do the work. I want the bike to look correct when I am done but I plan
to ride the bike a lot so I am considering I might compromise here to have a
better brake that might not look 100% correct.
The picture is my rear brake with both bands ready to be banded
