There is a rubber hose on the rear slightly to the right of the
center of the car. If it is swollen closed and there is air in the
line between it and the MC then you will have spongy brakes (or no
brakes at all).
The hose is attached to a T in the line on the rear axle and to the
steel brake line coming from the front of the car. The T feeds both
rear brake cyls.
