Brake lining?

Hey guys Ive got an old 75 yamaha DT 250, and i was wondering if theres anything to do with the brakes in the hub (brake lining)
Or would it be better to look for another hub/wheel?

look for another hub. relining hub is doable (basically a cylinder liner is pressed into the hub), but the cost is way more than finding another wheel.

ebay is your friend. It's where I found new rims and had my local shop install oem spokes to my repainted hubs.

Here's one for $15.
