Suntour Superbe Pro drilled brake levers

These are fine looking levers. I wish I had a build to go around them but I know there are many others looking to complete a superbe build. Asking $30 shipped.
Sold

Love these levers on my Olmo. Rustines Campy reproduction hoods fit them perfect.

For those of you needing the bushing nylon washers for the levers please contact me. To find replacements for my damaged levers I had to order 1000 of these. They seem to be made of unobtainium. But I have found a source and a way to make the new ones. Smiles, MH

Hmm, do you have a pic? I ask because I have a set of these levers/brakes that are not being used, and I wonder if I should take this opportunity.

Ditto. Iíve not seen the part youíre talking about. Does it serve as a ferrule for brake housing connection at top of lever?
thanks,

Noobinsf, and JT1973,

Here is a picture of the shoulder washer that is used as a bushing, and a centering washer for the levers. With use (and through damage) the levers wear the bushing down and they become a bit sloppy in the pivot area. I have to do some hand machining of the washers, so the set of four will be at a cost of $10 (enough to replace one set of levers) plus shipping. HTH, MH
