any company make aero drilled brake levers like suntour superbe pro?

I just love those but the pair I was to buy are non aero (I have downtube shifters, btw)
...any company someone can direct me to that makes sweet looking aero drilled levers?

I was going to get the tiagra aero levers for my rambouillet, but once I saw the drilled
suntour superbe pro, well that was the beginning of a new idea or two.

merry christmas

If you have a drill press you can make your own. The trick is to build yourself a fixture so that you can get the holes perfectly evenly spaced.

Ahh, "Drilium", the lightweight alloy of choice in the past.

A slightly less labor intensive method is to haunt old, long established bike shops. They typically have drawers or boxes full of old parts lying around that even they might not remember. Do a search and you may find NOS or used levers they will be happy to get rid of.
