Tired of cheap Ebay levers

If you had $150 (give or take) to spend on a pair of black shorty levers that won't fade, which ones would you buy, from where?

My bike sits outside a lot. Have had black, red, and green ebay levers, all faded.
I see Pazzo levers, but they look just like the cheaper ones.
Does anyone make powder coated levers?

+1 for Pazzos.
Comfortable and no fade after years on the bike.

Four wheels move the body ... two wheels move the soul.

I'd by one set from the2wheels on ebay and take the other 100 bucks and go have hamburgers and a shake 10 times over....

Or by two or three sets and have no burgers, but what fun is that?

Andrew: if they're the same levers you bought here:

And they still look the same, then no pics necessary. Just hit me with a paypal addy.
