Repairing worn tongue and groove slot in front brake backing plate

The tongue and groove slot which holds the front brake backing plate on many vintage models of BMWs often becomes worn. This results in annoying click or clunk whenever the brakes are engaged, or when the bike rolls to a stop.  Scottie's can machine these new parts to "like new" condition to repair this problem. Machine shop time is about 2 hours. Call us for details.


Once new metal is added by TIG welding, the part is machined.




The result is a precise "like new" part and a precise fit.
