Valley Brake in Pomona California used to do it, haven't dealt with them in about 7 years though.

These are the brakes I'm working with, they weren't cheap 40yrs ago! They are 4 floating pistons in magnesium calipers on a custom bracket.

Re: Disc brake pad relining?

Porterfield Brakes can make pads if you provide them with a stock pad. I don't know if they would reuse the original backing plate or just make some new ones.

They have made me completely new pads in the past, all I had to do was send them the old pad. Good people there.
