you say you've been looking for a nut selling brakes? I mean ...those are rare. And nice. But, c'mon.

Hmmm...it would only take me about half the time to drill them out since they don't have any stampings I'd have to spend hours filing away first

I think that guy's got a decimal misplaced somewhere, though. Maybe a screw loose, too.

Give the guy a break!
At least he's including shipping and a guy named "Manuel" to install the brakes for you! Now, how long you can keep him to wrench on other stuff on your bikes is a question you might bring up with the seller before doing the BIN thing.......hope the BIN includes two way plane tickest, clothes, food and at least a toothbrush for the guy........

I went with current product Mavic SSC calipers for my 'tout Mavic' build that has never come together. The reviews on Excel sports sold me as fellas were replacing Zero Gravity, Campy Skeleton, and Shiminoculture DA calipers with them. I'm still going to use Mavic SSC levers (they may be rebranded Moldolos, but with the dark anodization and the white Mavic branding, they are a beautiful).

For the Suntour Superbe Pro build I'm trying to source some Superbe Pro levers even though the other components were from the Superbe branded lever era, not quite the Superbe Pro lever era.

Obviously, I don't keep it era specific.

However, while the builds may be eclectic, they really make for a better looking and performing bike.
