older shimano 105 shifter hood replacements?

where can a guy get replacement shimano hoods for the older shimano 105 sti levers? My black ones are toast and i need a new set. There have been so many revisions of the sti i want to make sure i get the right thing. These are probably mid 90s and look to be very common.

Thanks

A lot of shops have online links to QBP (quality bicycle products) and they stock a lot of that stuff. Check the online store and look at the part number. For QBP it'll start "br" and have 4 numbers so brxxxx (I think br is brake, I might be wrong). It's a quality outfit, you can buy through your local shop, and there's a decent amount of detail to make sure you're getting the right thing.

nothing.....

i had a closer look at my levers and they are the st-1055. I cant find them anywhere online. They are available overseas all over the place for cheap so i would think i could get them here in the states somewhere.

I should have mentioned they are STI levers but the older style mid 90s with out the buttons or the flight deck stuff.

Just like these

Shop owner answer:
"Your hoods are worn-out? They aren't available anymore, and that's a clear indication that you need a new bike!" <big smile>

Retro grouch answer:
"Serves you right for not using a proper shifter like these Suntour Barcons. No, they're not for sale. You wish. Why don't you just wrap them in Kevlar or whatever." <scowls>
