Brake caliper rebuild. Has anyone rebuilt their calipers. This might be out of my league. Any place I can send these to get rebuilt ??? Haves used ones on eBay, but a gamble of sorts.

If you have the ability to take the bike apart and put it back together, you certainly can rebuild your calipers....and do a darn good job of it! Read to how-to on this site, and you'll do fine.

I agree with minimac. Based on what you have done so far, a brake rebuild is certainly within your skill set. Read the how-to article and ask if any questions.

Mate if you can rebuild a bike as someone else said this is a walk in the park the calipers will be as easy as on an 87 ,i think the main thing to look for would be scoring on the piston/S and replace the seals ,pop your pistons out with some comp air replace the seal/s done .Dont ever pay someone to do something before you have a crack at it yourself mate good luck .
