Nope, 1980 had the DLS brake as well. My bike was 100% bone stock in 1982 and it had one.

Edit:
This picture ran with the magazine test in--I think it was Cycle--in 1980 (duh, says so on his jersey). You can plainly see the brake.



Edit 2:
Hell, I forgot I had this posted out on the web. That's me with my bike in '82 or '83--Gold Belt, Hi-Points, Griffin pants--and a full head of hair.

Pretty sure that was a first generation Terraflex on the back and a Vesco desert tank.
