arcing drum brakes

Does anyone know where I can get the rear brakes on my '71 XS650 re-arced. I installed a fresh set of brake shoes last season hoping to improve poor rear wheel braking. It didn't work so I'm thinking arcing the hub and shoes is the way to go. Any views on this and where I might get it done would be a great help.

I think Brian Henderson used to do that.
