Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

White caliper brake (aside from sante)?

I'm looking for a white caliper brake for a 700c fork. I know about shimano's sante line (rip), but i can't seem to find nos sante brakes (if you can point me in the right direction for one of those, that would DEFINITELY be appreciated)...
Does anyone know of a line of white caliper brakes that 1) aren't pos and 2) are still in production, or a source for nos sante or other decent white nos caliper brakes? I only need one, but i'm willing to pay for a set if i have to.

thx...

(ps, i know this is almost entirely out of the question, but if you know of calipers in pepto pink, that'd be even better)

I sent all of her parts off to be powdercoated. I got a really good price on coating, but i think coating a brake is a bit much (at least that's how it feels right now). the brake is actually going on her bike, but if i can't find white (or, by the grace of god pink), i'm just going to buy black. she has a few black components on her bike, so it won't be horrible. white or pink would be sick, but black isn't the end of the world...

as it turns out, couldn't find nos at a reasonable price ($200+ for a brake/lever set isn't too bad, but isn't very good when you just want one brake), HOWEVER a guy at my lbs is-- get this-- selling me a white caliper off of HIS OWN BIKE to help me out!! I have to call him tomorrow for a price, but i've gotta say that's incredibly awesome. he said it's in good condition, which is totally icing on the cake.
Srsly, from this point on, if anyone in any part of philadelphia needs a part or work done, i'm sending them straight to chaz and them at bicycle stable.

I had a bike with those modolo brakes only they were plain white. I really should have taken them off the bike before I sold it. I'm friends with the guy that bought it, so if I ever really need some white brakes I might be able to buy them back.

Suntour/Dia-Compe Ole brakes were white.

Ofmega produced some pink components.
