I also received my Universal 61 repro hoods from Robbie recently, and I'd like to share my great pleasure and absolute amazement with his work. As has been said about his repro Campy hoods, his Universal hoods, with one exception, are absolutely identical to the hoods on my Atala when I bought it new in 1969. That exception - they are more supple and for that reason should provide a longer life than NOS ones. I look forward to many miles of comfortable riding with them.
Thank you Robbie for stepping up and filling this need.
