West Vail gas station does work. But can't speak to the quality. There is a tire shop if you take the next exit west of there and west on HWY 6. It used to be Meadow Creek Tire. Probably still is. Same story can't speak for the quality of the work.

If Farnham sees this he should have the best info

Unless things have changed since I lived up there I'd have her drive it down to Slee or Robie on the front range.

If it's not drivable now then wait for a good recommendation.

Vail is about 100 miles and two mountain passes from Salida. Neither a good trip for a Cruiser without brakes nor for flat towing same. Any halfway decent mechanic can swap out a M/C on the truck and then bleed the brakes. As noted above, in Vail that would most likely mean bring your gold card.
