NIB/NOS Mafac Course 429 / 529 Brake Levers: Gold & Silver - Drilled
These rad drilled levers from the 1970's and early 1980's were Mafac's top shelf lever, one in model 429 silver and the other 529 gold. These have their original hoods (though their colors are slightly mismatched), barrel adjusters, and rubber cover for the barrels. They come on the interior cardboard holder from the box the 529's came in.
New old stock. Levers are mint. Hoods are supple but have the slightest surface dryness or residue (this may be able to be conditioned, or cleaned up somehow?). The hoods are super flexy and soft, with zero cracking or damage. Hoods are a bit color mismatched, one is a deep amber brown, the other is medium tan.
- Model: One Course 429 and one Course 529
- Alloy bodies (FYI velobase has the models switched. The 429 has alloy bodies and the 419 has derlin plastic bodies)
- Dark tan/brown hoods
- Made in France
