Finally realised my dream (inspired by hours on this forum) of riding a Corsa Extra and was hoping for some advice from forum members on a couple of issues relating to the Dura Ace 7402 brakes. I am wondering if any members could help me locate correct brake hoods for the BL7402 aero levers. I have some modern Shimano hoods on the moment, which are serviceable but there is a big gap. I don't want to pay $150 for NOS. Has anyone found replacements that fit better? I'm also looking for the conical lock nut for the front brake (item 14 on this schematic http://www.flickr.com/photos/strongligh ... otostream/
Many thanks.

Can't help you with the hoods, but I sure like the looks of that bike.

Thanks for the positive comments everyone. Bramv it's a 55 square. Cassette not v authentic (also has a Mavic clinchers instead of tubs) but it makes it more rideable for me. Amazing thing is how smooth and silent it rides. You'd never guess while riding it that it's two decades old.
