i cant remember a supplier that had them stocked but i have seen some pop up on ebay from time to time.

i know they dont have them listed on the branford website but i would call and ask. baron von corpuz at renaissance may get them from time to time and it would be wise to enquire and leave an order with him.

failing that sell the brake levers you have and consider buying a whole new pair as it may prove cheaper all things considered. new levers with hoods are available but getting less so. seeing the hoods trade for $35 odd and knowing that i could buy a new lever set for $70-$80 i know what i would rather. the balance would be about the same and you would have a whole new deal and thus leave the hood hunting for someone else.

Depending on the version of the C-Rec brake lever hood (white ones, I imagine), you might be able to use the replacement hoods for Chorus/Athena levers (now available in black I believe).

Peter at vecchios.com is very knowledgeable about Campy stuff; I believe he's still running C-Rec himself.
vecchio's also have NOS century finish c-record stuff NmSpirito
