On an related topic, sometimes when doing a brake job, the emergency brake gets bumped. Usually only one click, and the Brake light comes on. Make sure the emergency brake is all the way up, and the switch located at the top of the pedal is no longer depressed. If it is, with the emergency brake all the way up, loosen the switch and move it away from the pedal until the light goes off. Then tighten it. Your issue with the light may, just may, have little to do with the work you performed (with a little luck).

The brake system should be opened and flushed as rust has contaminated the system. Its possible that the rust has accumulated in the the lines or more than likely in the proportioning valve causing the light to stay on.

What is the value of 1984 Honda CB900 custom motorcycle?

Naturally, it all depends, but let's assume the following: Best case, low miles, bike runs well, some wear and tear, brakes & tires good exhaust good then roughly 1500. Bike runs, brakes ok, tires worn, exhaust rusted, then 1200. Bike barely runs (with choke) needs tires, brakes ok, exhaust rusted, then 1000. Bike not running, needs tires, needs exhaust, brakes not working but gas tank is ok (not rusted, not leaking) then 2-300 if low miles, if high miles (>50k) forget it. Worst case, not running, seat dry rotted, brakes not working, tires cracked, exhaust rusted, only good for parts, 50.00

I bought one new in 1990. The body rusted off after about 14 years. It had 170,000 miles on the second odmoter. Other than replacing brakes twice, the clutch once, the odometer cluster, and patching the radiator once, there were no major repairs needed.

Parking brakes are all operated by a cable, which you tighten by pulling the lever. If the car has discs brakes all around, the problem is almost always that the cable is rusted in the sheath. If the car has rear drum brakes, the problem can also be a jammed lever inside the drum.
