Default "Rod Brakes"

Got a 4-stroke friction drive kit, looking for a bike to mount it on.

Found this one on craigslist

Screenshot image for when the CL ad goes down:

Looks awesome, and would be a good bike to convert to a china-girl bike at some point, but I never heard of these "rare rod brakes".
The seller says they stop great, but I don't trust those vintage brakes for a motorized bicycle, anybody know about these things? Easy to convert to more modern brakes?
The best part about asking questions, is that you add to the pool of information that future builders can look back on through the search function
