Brake system rework

    I acquired a 1980 xs400 and finally have gotten the time to work on it and have found that the brake fluid is completely crushed over (possibly original break fluid). The main thing im wondering is if it is even worth trying to do a rebuild or if there is something that is a direct replacement that is more of a common piece. Any advise would be awesome.

    You'll need to clean and probably rebuild the caliper but there are plenty of aftermarket master cylinders and levers that will work.
    Anything that'll fit 7/8 bars and has a 14mm bore should work.
