Black Downtube Cable Stops

Doing up another retro-mod build and am trying to find decent looking black cable stops. Anyone know where to get them?

Ideally, they'd look like this:


I see plenty of these but they're just plain ugly IMO.

Alternatively, I may paint a pair of silver stops and call it a day.

I've bought black Campagnolo cable stops off eBay a few times.

I've seen those and they look good. For some reason I assumed they fit differently. Are they the same as any other stop?

Yeah they fit the same as the other stops, no difference. Really couldn't tell why their Campy.

Seen some Bianchis that used black ones, generally on lower-cost bike models, similar to the top examples shown and mainly made of plastic, not alloy IIRC.
