Hi all new member. 1st question is what holds down the underseat grab handle. Its sprung loaded to pop up but I dont see anything that holds it down. Previous owner put a tie wrap on the frame to slide over handle. 2nd with bike on center stand and in neutral if i spin rear tire by hand i can feel and hear some pad drag, is this normal?

I think the handle should be held DOWN by a spring at it's base. At least that is how my '85 works. If it wants to spring up, maybe the spring is installed incorrectly.

I re-read your first post and didn't answer this- very light scraping of the brake pads is not unusual. It should in no way impede turning the wheel.
