It is probably not the quality of the cylinders or seals but more the 
lack of exercise that is causing the leakage. Also the way the cylinders 
have been reassembled in the past may be the cause. If they have been 
assembled using clean brake fluid instead of the special 
Girling/Lockheed/Até grease for assembling brake cylinders the chance is 
that the cylinder walls and/or pistons are corroded causing the leak.
