I thought to myself, "Self, you can maybe help @ascherer out." I trundled down to the basement lair and emptied the brake lever drawer onto the workbench. I found: early D-A (2 pr), 600, Exage, Galli (2 pr), Modolo (maybe Corsa?), Superbe, and another upper tier Modolo (maybe Pro?). No Campy of any kind. I don't recall ever being completely devoid of Campy levers. I guess there's a first time for everything.

Skip,
The Superbe are Campy clones and take the same hoods. I have a supplier for the hoods and have some in stock here, but they are not Campy hoods (aftermarket).Smiles, MH

Understood. I was just scratching my head that the Campy lever shelf was empty. Supply chain problems i guess. The Superbe and Modolo levers even hoods in good condition. I just need something to hang them all on.

Dang...2 Galli but no Campy...I think every BF member probably has a pair of Exage...that they save to help someone down the line.

I don't think this is Huret-specific but you do need a bolt with the thru hole and (assuming) 2 flats. unless it's only one flat?
I bet something else (maybe a common CP brake part) might fit but I have no Huret FD to compare my spare hardware against.

If somebody else doesn't chime up then what I would need are the dimensions of that bolt, the more exact details the better.

I'll have to check on the bolt measurements.
unworthy1,

Ok, completed some measurements and arrived at an estimate of bolt shaft length.

Flats of the bolt shaft is 5mm thick
Round of the bolt shaft is 6mm thick
Domed nut is 9mm long

see photo for next...

Cable hole is 2mm
Derailleur section the bolt must pass through is 6mm

So assuming the bolt shaft needs at least 4mm to catch in the nut, then
estimated bolt shaft length would be 12mm.

Sound about right?

Thanks for the offer VintageSteelEU. i may be able find something generic stateside. Also see my post re approximate bolt size.

It's steel. I might even have some domed nuts the right size if that was your preferrence.
Alternatively, brake cable fixing bolt for generic single pivot side pulls looks basically the same and has the right length. I got some new (don't remember who makes them at the moment) and they even have domed nut. Though the ones I have diameter 0.2mm smaller (5.6) than the Huret bolt I have (5.8), but they are probably made in several sizes.
