Hi, when I 1st got my Connie the front brakes were useless - it was fitted with relined shoes (from a well known brake relining place). I replaced the shoes with Indian made 6" shoes. The front brake now outperforms the 7"TLS brake fitted to my 60s Triumph twin. FWIW I recall Paul Henshaw sorting out some brake shoes in a video a while back - i'm pretty sure it was with getting the linings to make full contact with the brake drum

Hi Connieowner I bought the shoes from India, they have worked out very well, I think they were branded/ called "Janus" or something similar, anyway, whatever the case & for whatever reason (I do not know why) they work much better than a a pair of shoes that I had relined by Villiers services. I just need to sort out the back brake shoes (same issue - had them re-lined & they are crap) & i'll be happy
