You may have a bad master cylinder.

1. Worn grommets between reservoir and master cylinder, can cause air to get in the system; may need to be replaced and re-bled.

2. Excessive rear shoe to drum clearance; may need to be adjusted.

3. Seized slide pins on front calipers; may need to be freed and lubed or replaced.

4. Seized piston in either or both front calipers.

5. Anything keeping the pads from moving and staying in place against the rotors.

6. Grossly loose front wheel bearings

Any of these can cause the symptom you described, and I have seen them all at one time or another.

Good Luck!
