The SEXIEST brakes in history

Seeing the "best production brakes" thread in RW gave me this idea.

Anyway, here's my candidate for the sexiest brake in history. Let's see yours!



For the record, that's not my bike, but I must confess I do have an AP Lockeed caliper in its box, pateiently awaiting the spring.

I can't find a picture but I was thinking of the old veteran bikes with a wooden wedge as a brake shoe.
