      Hi, This is my first post/plea for help.
      I’ve got a Saxon Tour 251, which has been mouldering in the back of my garage for years,
      I’m starting to bring it back to life.

      Two questions for now:

      Where can I get one of the square-section swing arms that I’ve seen on other bikes?

      Are there any other Brembo calipers that would fit?

      Thanks in advance,

      One of mine has the square section arm, and the other round. Never noticed any difference in ride, but the brake rod needs a joggle in it to fit around the box section.

      Hello again comrades:

      Due to sitting in a damp garage for several years, the black paint on the plastic Saxon tank has come out in goose-bumps. There are little pimples all over the top of the tank.
      Is there any way I can smooth this before repainting?

      Oh dear! Your plastic tank may be suffering from osmosis. The dreaded firbreglass bug that bedevils many ‘plastic’ boat hulls.
