You may have a defective master cylinder or the pushrod adjustment may be incorrectly set.

I was thinking master cyl as well. I just bought this Sami a couple weeks ago, trying to get the bugs worked out

quick way to check, but its messy....crack the pipes off the master cyl and see if they release. I have seen this happen with water contamination / old oil causing the non return valve in the master cyl to clog and not let the brakes release fully. Its just a wavy washer covering the holes in the piston, such a simple thing but causes so many problems. At least a seal kit for them is cheap.

and don't get the paint stripper, oops, brake fluid on the body work..
