Wood Tandem Stoker Hoods - bad idea?
so i'm thinking of switching up the cockpit of my rando bike from non-aero brake levers to guidonnet levers and tandem stoker hoods, like so:
thing is, I don't think those Dia-Compe stoker hoods look period-correct. So I was thinking of making some out of wood.
something like these:
...but cut down to size and modded to accept bar-mounts.
are there any potential pitfalls of this idea? the only thing I can think of is that wood might transfer more vibrations to my hands than a modern rubber hood.
