Dawes Horizon - Weinmann Brake Covers

I have an eighties Dawes Horizon which is still going strong. Unfortunately, the rubber covers/hoods on both brake levers have deteriorated to the point of disintegration, probably because they are my preferred hand location on this bike. The brakes are (I assume) no longer made and even if I found ...
