WANTED:   Arai Brake Shoes posted by: Stacey on 11/10/2001 at 11:20:39 AM
It's been a tough job but I've managed to complete my mission... Identify the maker of my drum brake hub. It seems to be made by Arai.

Does anyone know of a source for replacement shoes for this unit? Or, where I can get the pair I have re-lined?
