    Trouble finding Hayes Mag spares

    So I have a set of hayes mags that are in need of a little attention, but while trying to find kits to rebuild the master cylinders and calipers I have found no one in the UK seems to stock them anymore.

    Is it simply a case of me not looking hard enough, or has the support for these older systems dried up due to them being so out of date?

    If you know of any stockists that have the relevant kits please let me know, as I think they might be heading for the bin otherwise.

    Many thanks

    Well, I'll leave this here in case it is of use to anyone else but I contacted hayes directly and the seal kits for this particular vintage of brake has been discontinued.

    However, the kits for my hopes are still available some 15 years later, so I guess I know who'll be getting my money next time I need a new system.

    Last year I found a rebuild kit for these old school hayes, but it was by pure luck and it was a bike shop in Ireland (I'm in Seattle WA).. It may have been the last one on the face of the earth..

    It may be time for new brakes..
