Question about 1976 BMW R 75-7
You can still order many parts for your bike from a BMW dealer. Look at Max BMW for the online parts fiche for your bike. Looks like the part you want is listed in the diagram at the link above. Kinda spendy. Have your tried Beemerboneyard or Motobins?
Does the piston move back at all? If not, you may have a plugged return port on the master cylinder or partially blocked brake hose. Can you force the piston back into the caliper with a C clamp? Also, check for corrosion around the piston (pull back the dust boot) that may prevent it from returning into the caliper. Probably need to rebuild the caliper, but some more investigation will lead you to the problem.
