can't seem to edit the above post so i have to reply.
Try running the engine in mate, 400klms is way too short a time to be doing 80kpu on an iron 175. 1500klms of short trips varying your speed but never exceeding 70 for very long.
for the rear brake, try holding the cable with a tang?

Maybe call sam to have it checked over? sounds like the mixture is fine so it may be worth rechecking the timing, although it was set with a strobe light.
Remember running in should last for around 1500klms not 400!!

Seizing can be caused by a lot of things.
Piston to bore tolerance being too tight, or ignition timing being too far advanced, or mixture being too lean. It can even be caused by not having the air filter connected properly.

Have you changed anything since the bike was here??

I can give you a replacement front brake from the Li150 and then you can sell the disc brake on its own for the correct price.
I have an old one lying around i'm sure.

LD's are not so rare, but mechanically they are quite complicated. Try to buy a really good one. It will be a very difficult restoration compared to a series three.
