Arai drum for sale?

I'm not sure if this is appropriate for this forum, so I apologize in advance. I would post in the "want to buy" section, but it looks pretty dead over there and I doubt many of you guys check over there very often.

We are looking for the Arai drum brake for our tandem. If anyone has one they would be willing to sell, or knows someone, please let me know!

These things are in short supply. They have been selling on eBay for $200+. When I asked at R+E a couple of months ago, I was told that they had only 4 left.

I've personally been VERY unimpressed with Mel at Tandems East. While he was very quick to reply, he said he would only sell me the brake if I bought a full wheelset. That sounded fine, except that his wheelset was almost $300 more than what Peter White or my LBS was offering me the set at. When I told him that I was still trying to decide to get the wheels from him or my LBS, he had some VERY rude things to say about my LBS, even thought he obviously knows nothing about them. Even if he was the only retailer left offering the brake, I would personally prefer to buy from someone that acted a little more professionally.

The Market Place forum is the appropriate spot for "Want to Buy" Posts, they are not allowed in regular forums. Posting in the Market Place requires an upgraded membership, which can be had for only $3 for a trial 1-month period.
