Hi,
Does anybody know if you can get "modern" replacement brake lever hoods? I need a light blue pair for some Shimano 600ax levers (from 1984)?
Cheers
Mark

The last NOS set of AX brakes went for £248, I think that answers the question.

If you are a completeist, the box included pads that go over the cables under the tape, but not the little Aeodynamic clip to hold the two cables together. That must be a Dura Ace thing.

If yours are split through, I do have some that are complete but ragged.

Not light blue, and not even 600ax, but these Adamas levers are superficially similar:

I don't know whether the hoods will fit or not, but at £10 a pair complete, it wouldn't break the bank to try.

The seller is Paul Milnes Cycles - a well-established Yorkshire cyclocross specialist. I've been a satisfied eBay customer of his in the past.

Three pairs left. Be quick!
