Subject: [CR]Brake for my Keirin bike

I'm hoping someone can help me out with a front brake for my keirin bike. I need the kind that has the adapter that clamps the front brake to the fork legs.

Chris Ioakimedes has one on his Iribe keirin bike shown here in his photos:

It comes with a cheap clamp on brake lever and either a Dia Compe brake caliper (Regular) or with a Shimano brake caliper (Deluxe). Either the Regular or Deluxe version is fine; name your price. Help me out here... Don't make me drill the fork crown!

There are a couple of sources for the rear, but I haven't found any sources for the front.
