They don't make new cables for what you're putting it on? Restoration project?

Depends on the end.
Some I can do, others I don't have.
Bring the cable by and I'll check it out.

Not sure if a cable from another bike would work...

I can get the cable used from eBay but don't trust that anymore.

New cable coming from Italy so it will be a long wait. So I thought if a shop here can do it.

Thanks Patrick i will pay you a visit soon. Thanks.

MotionPro makes cables.

I bought one on amazon for my bike for $15 shipped brand new. Took 3 days.
