Just curious: Are there non-italian or asian-made Aero hood brake levers?

For example, French, German, American, or British Aero hood brake levers that were not made in Italy, Japan, or Taiwan (looking at you Modolo, Dia compe)?

SJS Cycles carry a good range.

My bad, by mentioning Dia compe and Modolo I meant to imply that they were responsible for some brake levers that were branded as belonging to French or US manufacturers (i.e., no made in France or US Aero levers that I know of)

CLB of France certainly made aero brake levers and in France, too: the Super Profil in the early-mid 80s and the Omega later in the decade.

Indeed, there were Weinmann Delta brakes.. made in Switzerland that were pure aero in every respect. c. 1987

Also Magura, but I assume you mean for cable brakes.
Also Mavic - or were they made in Asia?

I can't recall whether Zeus made brake levers.
