I would not say they brake levers are not safe, they are just not the best levers out there. the upper portion of the levers the so called "safety levers" are not really meant to stop you. if the brakes are correctly adjusted the regular portion of the brake lever should stop you OK.
can you get more info on the bike? if the frame is not CroMoly of some level, including the fork, I would not go much over $125-150
