I can confirm that the dia compe/cane creek are an ok (not exact - but good enough) fit for shimano levers. Other options are very limited.

Those were the closest I found but was worried the levers might be too flat across the top.
LG I'll take your advice thanks. Now to decide if I order brown or black, bikes are as bad as cars.........

The brown are a calf poo brown, not the gum type color that old hoods used to be. Still look ok if blacks not your thing though.

There are two different shapes for Shimano levers . The cane creek ones are I think for the later more shapely 600 levers. Yours are the first generation model. I have a set that I got on eBay. I will have a browse.

Cheers
