Who sells road-style v-levers?jw25

I've only found one source, and they want $70 a pair. Seeing as my project bike has about $200 in it right now, that's getting steep. Anyone know a better source, or have a set they'd part with?
Thanks, Jon

DiaCompe 287v is the only one I know of- do a search
I think Brant has them on his Il Pompino,ask on the SS board

He'll probably respond pretty fast. I also saw another lever metioned, a cheaper version still made by Dia Compe.

They sell the Dia-Compe 287V levers for $40. I've ordered three sets from them in the past; good service, no problems.

Dia Compe # 287-V works perfectly with V brakes. You will need some other way of shifting as these are not STI compatible. You will need bar end shifters or down tube shifters mounted on something like a Kelly "Take Off".
