Universal Brake Hoods

I have a set of Universal Model 77 brake levers I need for hoods. Any good sources for hoods that will fit and look reasonably good? I've heard rumours of reproduction Universal hoods, but since this bike's a rider, I'm not overly concerned with getting an exact copy.

The reproduction hoods are for the older Mod. 68 and older style levers so they won't work for yours. No idea what you could use for the Mod. 77s except going to eBay.

Thanks to all for your insight. Now that I know their are no repos for Model 77, it sounds like Dia Compe or Cane Creek is the way to go.
