i like "motorcycle style" braking. but, i have a pretty long stem so the cabling is a little weird since the cable housing goes on the right side of the caliper (if you're mounted on the bike), same side as where the brake cable is coming from.

i hope i have made myself clear :)
so i was just wondering if anyone can identify this font caliper (i don't think it's either campy or shimano)

Looks like the old roller cam design. Have no idea where you could find such an animal.
It's a Shimano Dura-Ace AXTJeanloz

It's an old school Shimano Dura-Ace AX 'Aero' front brake. They havn't been made since the early/mid 1980s. Places to find one? Your local swaps, ebay, that's about it.
absolutely correct! my friend still have this model on his bikesbw

I think last year I read somewhere that it is an older Shimano caliper. If I remember correct it was AX or something and was produced in the mid-eighties.

I read an article about those and the old campy record aero calipers online a while ago. The article said that the stopped making them because they were unsafe, flimsy, and the braking power was crap.
