Do I have an '82 caliper on my '83?

Post by bofler »



I am about to order parts to rebuild the brakes from top to bottom. Luckily, I had a look at the calipers and noticed what I think is a discrepancy from the stock '83. My front-left caliper has 30mm pistons. I believe that an '83 has 32mm pistons on the front-left. So, I'm guessing that someone swapped it out for a different year caliper. Would it be from an '82 since it has 30mm pistons?

The other two calipers seem to be the proper size for an '83. 25mm on the front-right and 32mm in the rear.
