Almost finished my vintage bike project.

Only part lacking is a pair of Brake lever hoods for the old old shimano 105.

Ideally black to fit the new paint work.

Any help in tracking a pair down would be brilliant as I've tried local workshops and they have nothing old enough.

Regards JT

Not sure, all they say is shimano 105 , the top of the brake for the good is very pointy compared to modern ones. The kit came on a Raleigh 700dyna fit Gaerne team bike

But these are less than half the price: http://www.sjscycles.co.uk/shimano-bl-r ... -prod4594/ and fit perfectly, I know cos I used them on this: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=268523&hilit=sirrus

Yeah :) there the ones.

Don't think I can warrant that sort of price on the EBay ones though sadly :(

I gained the vintage road bike with original 105 kit from new that had never been used, all jockeys and gears etc... Was completely pristine , just the steal frame showed age , I have just finished full new paint job , all parts clean and ready for re-fit , be it the hoods that are missing as originals had started to rot.

Why would you buy the eBay ones when the SJS are an exact match?

You did see my post didn't you?
