Shimano 600 EX (BL-6207) NOS Vintage Gum Non-Aero Brake Lever Hoods

✓ Original pair of hoods - produced in the 1980s
✓ New old stock! Still unused after all these years
✓ Suitable for historic cycling events such as L'Eroica
✓ Worldwide shipping

Shimano 600 EX brake lever hoods (or rubber covers if you prefer), hailing from Japan and in production during the 1980s (yet still new & unused after all this time!). The perfect finishing touch for your vintage bike, but great for bikes of the non-vintage variety too!

If you're taking part in L'Eroica or any other vintage event, these are fully compliant - so rest assured, the pre-1987 police won't lock you up for having the wrong lever covers!

*New old stock items may have marks from storage over the years, and as we often have multiples they can vary from piece to piece, but they are always genuine new & unused items. Please consider their age when fitting as the rubber can weaken over time.


Colour* - Gum
Cable Routing - Non-Aero

*The colour description is just a guide, please check the photos too as we make sure these are as close to the true colour as possible.

NB: Hoods must be carefully installed from the rear of the lever not the front. This avoids any unwanted damage as torn hoods cannot be returned! Applying a lubricant such as vaseline or talcum powder to the lever helps when fitting.


We've been safely sending orders around the world since 2010. There's a handy shipping calculator on the shopping cart page so you can see the cost of postage as soon as you've added it to your basket. Your order will be carefully packed and sent with tracking & insurance, we despatch most orders within 2-3 days but larger items and orders placed before the weekend can take an extra day or two to process.

We accept returns, please notify us within 14 days and ensure the item arrives back with us no later than 30 days after the order was received.

We don't charge VAT, however, if buying from outside of the UK please remember that there may be import fees to pay directly to the delivery company before receiving the order. Unfortunately we can’t advise on the exact costs as it varies from country to country, so please check your national rates before purchasing.


Cable Routing - non-aero means the cables come out at the top of the brake levers, meaning the cables are on show. With aero levers the cable comes out of a small hole by the handlebar, allowing the cables to be hidden under the handlebar tape.
