Anyone know who might rebuild 110 front brake calipers (with stainless steel pistons ?)

It is not hard to DIY.

I am sure any rebuilder would do it, but I have only seen exchange and I am not sure if they have 110 ones. With the price of the vented conversion at 400-500 (last I checked) it seems penny wise and pound foolish to rebuild non-vented but YMMV.

I think A1 Cardone will. I called them some years back about some calipers and IIRC the person I spoke with said if they didn't have what I needed available, I could send mine for rebuild. You'd probably have to send the SS pistons with the calipers.
But as said, it's not a difficult DIY.

x3 If you can get the proper parts a rebuild will only take about 10min per caliper if they are not all dirty and seized up

I was just searching for the same thing a little while ago. This info was offered in response on another thread:

"If you have the original calipers on your 110, the seal kit (AEU2539) is available from RDS or Rovahfarm. The parts manual doesn't show a part number for the pistons, and looking around on the net, I can't find any listing for pistons for the early calipers either."

I still haven't been able to find a replacement piston kit. I wonder if a machine shop could turn some out for a reasonable price.

I had trouble finding them a couple years ago when I was in need... I think I ended up finding them at D.A.P.

I am telling you, just do the D90 vented disc and caliper swap and be done with it.

DAP does not have the caliper rebuild kits for the 110 and I would consider doing a 90 caliper if they made them with a stainless steel piston and not a chrome plated one that gets eaten apart here in VT with road salt brine and all the other chemicals they spray on the roads Rovers North has bolt in new Pro Line replacement for $125 / caliper, with the VT winters I'm sure they will get eaten apart just like the originals

Yup, that's what I recently did. Easier and better.

I might put a group bulk buy from the UK for Stainless steel piston rebuild kits if the price is right , all you would need to know is what size piston are in your calipers (they are either 46mm x 31mm or 41mm x34mm

So buy the new ones and new SS pistons and swap them out and stop running unobtainium.

Open to fronts and rears . So 90's disks and calipers will bolt in place or the early 110 fronts (without modification)?

Bolts may be different, but my understanding is yes. Others will know best.

Someone will confirm, but the holes should all line up.
