Universal AER brakes

I'm contemplating restoring a Centurion Cinelli close to original spec. Apparently, they were equipped with Universal AER brake calipers and levers. Does anyone have pics of these so I know what to look for? Google did turn up one BF thread from '04, but the photo links are long since dead.

Thanks. I assume the limited results when Googled means they are rare and difficult to find (though not necessarily expensive, which would suit me fine).

The comment I found in several locations is that their stopping power was nil.

Hmm, that's encouraging. I thought I had read that about a few other of the "aero" brake calipers; Dia-Compe I think. I actually purchased the bike equipped with some mid-90s Campagnolo Athenas, which have a similar mixed review.
