$3000

Is that cheap? :shock:

I suppose it is when he says the only other pair for sale is currently $5k on ebay.

Quite possibly the ugliest brakes ever aside from a couple of French copies......they belong in a museum and not on a bike !

If they were human I wouldn't trust them to sit the right way on a lavatory..

Sorry, rant mode off.

By prototype I guess he means the 1986 model that was shown just for the one day then withdrawn....
I do have a soft spot for these crazy brakes!

If true prototype, then 1 of only 3 sets (apparently) from 1984. Could very easily be one of the 1st generation sets (1986) which are near identical.
Personally a big fan of the 3rd generation and still use them on my Colnago.
