Mafac brake levers are the 3rd generation type with half open back to the lever. Polished these up same as bars and stem with wet & dry paper followed by a good buff with Solvo and new stainless nuts & washers fitted. The original blue half hoods were shot so I've used some gum hoods by Rustines... at around £25 it's a shame they're not half the price. :roll:

You’ve done a great job with these as they have come up really nice. I like Mafac brakes both for form as well as function. These fit with the rest of the build for sure
