You will need the levers, and very likely new housing, cables and bar tape. Aero levers work fine with any road caliper or center pull brake. You should be able to find some good NOS levers at an LBS at low cost or, Shimano, Campy, Tektro and Dia Compe all make a current version. I believe Nashbar sells the Tektro levers under their house-brand name.
You should avoid the Dia Compe's model 287V levers as they are intended for disc brake use only.
