Define "Sticky"

Rear brakes are all mechanical. Look at the drum in back and check the operation of the brake rod.

There's a couple of pivot points that are probably sticking. Mine has always worked loose.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

Is the return spring broken? It's located just in front of the pedal pivot, connected to the bike frame.

Broken or disconnected return spring, possibly rusty/sticky pivots. Spritz a little wd-40 or similar on the pivot point under the floorboard and see if that helps.
