I had an issue recently with the front brake not stopping well on my '95, and a funny binding feeling in the lever pull. Similar to what you said, lever feel totally changed after about half travel. Bleeding the front brakes made a difference, but it was still there. I noticed that if I changed the angle at which I pulled the lever the feeling went away. Shot a little lube on the lever pivot, problem solved. Stops on a dime now. Bike is parked outside 24/7 so either some dirt or a little corrosion at the pivot point seems to have been the culprit.
