1983 Honda CBX F rear brake seizing when it heats up

Hello, does anyone have any idea what the fix is for the rear brakes seizing up? It usually happens if I apply heavy pressure or it seems after it heats up. The caliper doesn't want to release. I then have to pull over and let it cool down for about 20 minutes before they let go. New calipers? Replaces hoses?
Any info is greatly appreciated it. Cheers.

    I would love to find out if you solved your problem, becuase I have the exact same issue, exactly. I was going to buy a new rear brake system. Is that what you have had to do?

The seal which holds the piston is either gummed up or the piston is rusted. advise a piston&seal kit to fix this.

1983 Honda GL 1100 brake calipers are dragging

Hi, Scott and the usual suspects are:
1. Caliper, bracket, wheel, or brake disc not properly spaced.
2. Contaminated caliper causing the piston to stick.
3. Wrong type of brake fluid causing seals and o-rings to swell.
4. Wrong brake pads for the caliper.
5. Improper free play at the master cylinder.

Honda civic 84 my brakes in the back right side has seized in the

Its probaly the wheel bearing that seized up, and you have to get the car towed, and get the bearing knocked out and replaced...Um sure the rear brakes are fine, because rear shoes dont really lock up, unless someone overtighten them, after doing a rear brake job...Goodluck...
