Source for 4-finger flat bar brake levers?

I replaced the integrated shifter/brake levers on my Marin Fairfax with separate shifters and brake levers after the front shifter broke. The new shifters are fine, but the shop put on 2-finger mountain bike brake levers to replace the 4-finger levers on the integrated set. With my Ergon grips, I don't like how I have to reach over slightly to engage the 2-finger levers. Searching online, the only levers I found that come in a 4-finger size are the Shimano Nexus. Does anyone know of other levers in this 4-finger size? There are also a couple of ads on ebay but I've found very little selection at the regular on-line bike parts sites.

I tried sawing the shifter parts off - worked pretty well. The black rustoleum is drying now and I should have them reattached by this weekend.
