General Information
Initial set of brake levers came as a set with the Golden Arrow pattern brakes.  These are seen in the 1983 intro brochure, but appear to have been soon replaced (as early as Oct 83) by the BL-Z306-105.  These levers appear not to have the oval cutouts that the Z306's had, but instead just a depressed oval shape which may account for the difference in weight. However...they are 30 grams lighter than the Z306.
The levers themselves do not have the Golden Arrow pattern. Originally came with a set of gum colored rubber covers.
