no brakes

So update for anybody wanting to save a few Bucks.The master cylinder found by Mr Howerd on ebay is indeed correct for a 5a ...The only problem i had was the pedal fork was a bit tight on the threaded rod, maybe i have the wrong one but it did go on far enough after i cut 1/2" off the thread
