Are you sure you bleed them well. I've found it helps to engage the the parking brake when bleeding the rear brake. Remember the rear brake operates both the rear caliper and the smaller piston on the front caliper so you will have to bleed both of them.

Does your front brake work when you pull the right hand lever?

In that case I assume you had the brake line off so go through the bleeding procedure again. Set the rear parking brake and bleed the rear brake first then bleed the small piston on the front brake (if you are not sure which piston to bleed on the front follow the brake line up and do the one that has a line leading to the lead master cylinder). That should get you working again if you mounted the rear brake back correctly.

BTW, you will have to readjust the parking brake to get it to work right.

Your welcome.

For those that are reading this and think something is missing in the narrative, we exchanged PM's in which I explain the bleed procedure to him.
