Post subject:  California Dreamin'

Since we have no real winter here in SF Bay Area CA, I've just changed out the fluids and bled the brakes+clutch and gone for a 50 mile East Bay Hills ride. I am so in love! With all the attention over the years and with all the advice of this wonderful forum, the Paso rides as though it were new, even with over 50 thousand miles. Joy.

Hey Randtcastell,

Do you have slightly bigger pics?
What wheels did you mounted?

Looks shiny!

Thank you both for your kind interest. The wheels are take-offs from a kitted 1988 851 Strada, as well as the floating rotors. I am extremely lucky to have them. Made of unobtainium.

Maybe this Dropbox link will allow access to the 1.1mb file:

"But, my mistake or the wheels are those of SUPERLIGHT???"

The Superlight would have similar wheels, but 17". These are 16" wheels from a Tricolore 851 Strada that was kitted for racing. I inherited the wheels and rotors.

Frank I checked for numbers on the bottom of my MCs in the evening yesterday. The are without any numbers. Completely featureless and smooth. I took photos—

the pictures just show the bottom side of the brake fluid reservoires not the cylinder section of the brake/clutch pump, or am I missing something?

Thank you Frank. I'll measure the O.D. of the MCs w/ calipers and share it. Sadly the sides only say 'min' & 'max' front & back. No numbers. ;^|

Frank, So sorry to delay getting info to you re the MCs. I had my head somewhere else, but Gerhard set me straight and I got the photos to show the MC sizes. the # on the MC for front brakes is 38, # on the clutch MC is 58. Thank you for bearing with me.

Thank you for the pictures. Often the relevant numbers are the ones on the bottom but in this case it seems that they are the ones on top. Don't know about 38 and 58, but 13 and 16 make sense. PS13 as a clutch master cylinder and a PS16 for the brakes.
