bmw r80 mono replacement caliper

ive searched and searched....... i know there is a place that sells the oem brembo calipers much much cheaper than bmw,

i can not find it.

what i am experiencing......

i just changed the front brake like to a braided stainless one i had made. when bleeding the brakes, i noticed a small bit of fluid on the line where the caliper halves are bolted together. when i hold pressure on the brake, the little bit of fluid grows, then when i let off it contracts.

i am not sure if its dribbled on top and what i am seeing is it go into and out of the caliper halves when the pressure flexes them, or if its seeping out and sucking back in. i did not experience any fluid loss, and the lever holds firm if i hold it for a minute or so, i am just thinking at almost 30yrs, it could be time for new calipers

thanks for the help
