Shimano 105 replacement hoods. Source??

I need some replacement hoods for Shimano 105 brake levers - late 80's vintage. Any idea on where to go?

Thanks

Do they need to say Shimano on them? I got a generic pair for my Miyata from my LBS - they dug them out of a parts bin. $5 and they fit perfectly.
