I'm guessing you are thanking someone for answer your question in the Title of your post.

I could be the spring has come loose from one of two points. Or the spring is sprung. Or the inside is rusted and needs to be taken off and cleaned. If this is a new purchase and the bike has been setting for a while my bet is on the rusted thing.

mine was like that when I bought it. i pressure washed the joint where it hinges and worked it with the brake assy un hooked. after a few minutes it free'd up and I lubed it. They get a build up of road slop and get sticky from time to time!!

If ya cant fix it with a hammer, it's prolly lectrical

Break pedal doesn't go up. Bad spring? 83 Wing.

It could be a bad spring, if your asking how to get the pedal to come up. Use penetrating oil on brake pedal next to frame and inside on the post also. Work pedal and apply more oil to both placesand keep working it. Let it sit over night and apply more oil and work it some more. If the pedal is stiff it should free up after working it. If the spring is bad you should be able to see or feel that.

After I got mine free I apply a generous drop of used oil every time I change the oil now. Just dip my finger in the old oil and put a drop both inside and next to the frame. It's working great now.

Then I found a 86 GL1200I to cheap to pass up.

Mine did the same thing. Everytime it would rain, it would rust and tighten up. Finally I got tired of working spray oil into it and installed a grease fitting. No more problems
