Looks like pretty sloppy casting flash, but only in the $20 range. On ebay and elsewhere, from Serbia.

Anybody tried em out?

Hopefully someone chimes in. I'm in the market for new hoods.

Get 'em while you can, seller might be "shut down" by Campag's trademark lawyer at any time.

Different Seller?

I'm almost positive that I got these from Serbia; maybe a different seller? I wanted the "Globe" logo to replace the originals. Mine look a little more translucent than the ones you posted. These have a very original feel to them - (if memory serves me; the old ones kind of turned to plastic in the end). I just kept looking until I found these. They weren't always posted.

John Barron (eBay user velostuf or https://www.velostuf.com/) has reproduction Campagnolo brake hoods (globe and shield). Not $20, but likely higher quality.

+1, John is a first rate seller. I have some his hoods mounted right now, very nice products.

Don't try to remove them unless they are new and supple....

Seriously, sorry about your mishap. I'm sticking to the supple part though so maybe next time try to heat them up to make them a bit more pliable first. But honestly, we all get old and stiff as we age.

Don't do what I just did.
Actually what I did was squeeze the lever WAY down, so i could unclip the brake cables and save $3. Moving the levers WAY down ripped them and costs me $50.

For me this Serbia repops are translucent like the ones first pictured. Not bad for the price but id like some that are more solid.

I'll have to try Rustines next.

I thought dia-compe (or someone) made a non-aero hood that was like a perfect match for campy of that era that were pretty available. Probably cheaper unless the campy logo is important.

If you're thinking of vintage brake hoods, Modolo 920 (almost exactly like Campagnolo) and 919 (anatomic) still turn up on eBay frequently.

I wouldn't lose sleep over it. They've been available in various iterations for the past decade at least.

919's are how much? I just bought a set of speedy levers, to get the hoods... go figure.

If you can stand the colors, someone in Canada has orig AME 919 anatomical replacement hoods. Good prices, but a big if about the colors. I was considering trying to dye or paint them.

I agree what's advertised at the moment is a bit spendy, but recent sales show more reasonable prices:

Recent Modolo 919 sales

So, be patient or make a more reasonable offer on some of the $65+ listings.

Ive had Rustines on my 77 Colnago Super for the past 4 years when I did the refurb. They still look great and probably a bit better with the slight aging. Very nice.
