Just bought a Raleigh Elan in good enough nick to ride around without too much work. One thing that definitely needs doing quickly is the brake hoods which are a sticky mashed up mess. I've not had drop bar brakes before so I'm unsure as to what type of hood I need to replace them, the levers are Shimano Exage 105(I think) but I cannot find specific hoods for this model. Any advice would be appreciated.
Worst comes to the worst, you can still find the complete levers rather than just the hoods on eBay:

May not be all that much more expensive than a pair of hoods, either!
