Hood Question

Hey Y'all,
I know that Campagnolo released the white hoods on the Victory groupset but would there have been white hoods on any bikes with SR brake levers? I'm debating putting white hoods on my Chirico but I don't know if this would be period correct.

Man, gum hoods are hard enough to keep looking clean.

I put white hoods my Tommasini knowing they'd be dirty fast and hard to clean. But on the bright side it fits the overall look of the bike better than gum or black goods.

Go with white if it's a better fit and to your liking.

White shoes, seat, hoods or bar tape, give them a quick wipe down with a baby wipe after each ride and they look new every ride

Cobalto - white hoods, very faint metallic white housing, white O rings on adusters.
blue “gems”, plastic on my he pivot nut, actually plastic. Blue paint fill in the script logo, triangular cross section arms.

I did have a set of Record or Super Record on one of my bikes. However, I am not sure if they were original Campagnolo issue or after market copies of Record and Nouvo Record.

Deltas brakes came with levers that had white hoods. Just be sure to change them back to Gum before Labor Day!
Best, Ben

I use these and have had great results
