This model had some problems with air in the back brake system if it has the rear wheel antilock setup. You should adjust the rear brakes tight where the wheels wont roll for testing, and bleed the rear brakes again. The recheck the pedal. If it is good to go, then back off the rear shoes just a bit and then recheck the pedal. If it still has problems get back with me and I will point you in the right direction. Go over all of this and if you have any more questions at all, I am here to help. Good luck with it, have a great day, and Thanks for using Just Answer.
