Shimano Para-Pull Brakes

What would these Delta-like brakes be worth? I believe they are 81 or 82 vintage. I have the original AX levers with white hoods.

Make that gray aero hoods. I did not find any Ebay listings.

Not knowing the condition, brakes & levers>>>$120-150. There was a brand new-in box complete set on Ebay that sold for $240 and a brand new set of calipers only that went for $160. Then again, there was a used set of calipers starting at $25 that garnered no interest.

I found them in Velobase. They are Shimano BR-AD20, Adamas AX

The bike also sports MKS MP-707 platform pedals.

I have these on my 80's Trek:

They look similar, but appear to use a different brake pad than yours..

My beef with them is they stop poorly. I think they'd stop better if the pads were made out of a softer compound. The pads are so hard, it makes them feel like they're glazed over (but they're not).

What is your take on the stopping power of your set? I have extra pads, but I have a feeling they wouldn't improve the stopping power. Have you found a good source for brake pads? I've been tempted to try to modify some different pads made out of a softer compound to see if that'd improve their stopping power.

Do you think these pads would fit?
