Ironically, it was the new stuff on the bike that caused grief, not the 65-year-old parts. "At Roebling, Ross got a fourth place and our front brake wasn't even working," says Faber. "It was an aftermarket replacement part. It just didn't work. We were worried that it would lock up, so he just backed off the adjuster and hardly used it all. He just used the rear brake, which is dangerous. When we finished at Roebling, we went through a swapmeet and found a used front brake—an original Harley piece—and installed it."
