Areo Brake Hoods ?

I'm going to replace the brake hoods and rewrap the bars, but I'm not sure as which hoods to get? Does anyone know what model these are, I'm guessing 105's but not sure?

It's not Shimano. It's a A Dia Compe, probably an "aero grand comp" AGC family member. Yellow Jersey has a lot of obscure brake hoods.

Gran Compe hoods are hard to find. Ebay's your best bet, but Not cheap.
