No brake padel 82 1100 gl interstate

I was coming home tonight and went to push down on brake pedal and went all the way down and was not stopping. I was wondering if someone could point in the direction of a good brake down from the pedal to the rear brake.

You've either got a hose that ruptured, or the seals in the rear master cylinder went bad.
It's not especially complicated, just time consuming. Go get a Clymer's Manual to help you through the process.
Don't spook the road sheep.

A rebuild might be in the works, but first make sure you haven't got brake fluid leaking out somewhere. Fill up the reservoir, bleed the brakes, then start pumping them and see if you find it dripping out.
