Any ideas where I can get some?
Cable out the top type, gum white or black.

The Dia-Compes on Ebay seem pricey and I'm not sure about the fit.

Red amé hoods would be flippin ace.

I got some cheapo brake levers off ebay a while ago. Generic non-aero and new they were. They were just like old Weinmanns and I'm sure the hoods would fit. Take a search on ebay and see if you can find any.

Forgot to say I think the brand name on the hoods was Polygon. I'll check and confirm when I see the bike later in the week.

Weinmann brake levers with good condition hoods can be picked up fairly cheaply on ebay.

Bought a pair of 80's drilled hole levers with virtually new white hoods for about £8 or £9 inc postage about 6 months ago.
