Dia Compe aero levers were all the rage in the 80's

I even threw away my Campag' levers on my Raleigh and replaced them with the Dia Compe jobs, til' this day they are still on her.

Aero Gran Compe 250 levers, all the way, I reckon. I did TTs in the 80 on a pair of these and they were perfect:

Thanks for all the ideas guys. I now have my monoplaners fitted, but this has thrown up another constraint I hadn't thought of. The folks at Campagnolo didn't want such new-fangled fripperies as quick release cams spoiling the clean lines of their brakes. This means I need a QR at the lever.

Am I right in thinking this rules out most of the suggestions? At this rate my options are going to be Campy or Campy!
