If your talking about the brakes I would check the rubber hoses going to the front brake calipers. With age they tend to collapse and don't allow the brake fluid to blead off the calipers as quickly as it should. To check when it's locked up take the hose loose from the caliper on the caliper side if the brakes release and the wheel moves replace the rubber hoses. Hope this helps
