    So what are you guys doing for lube on these cables when you build them? I'm assuming they need something, right?

    Nice. I'm going to mock up some bars this weekend and get a better idea of cable lengths. Thanks for the awesome how to!

    Looks like everything is available from the site that was listed earlier in the thread: http://www.flanderscables.com/

    ive used this method with the bakers flux , and lead free solder and it works great ! i also use brass pen ink inserts ( from OLD pens ) cut down to 1/8 - 3/16 pieces to replicate the small barrel ends on triumph / british cables , the cable eventually breaks but the solder joint does'nt just my .02

    after looking at both sights posted earlier looks like flanders might be a little cheaper. But all their stuff is listed by part number once you look at buying kits. what are you guys using to measure your cable thickness? a micrometer or something similar cause i'm about to take off my tbars for a set of apes just for shits and giggles and wanna make my own cables

    Thanks Sumo. Made a foot clutch cable instead of solid linkage for the old shovel. Used solid core solder and some liquid flux from the farm supply store I had sitting on a shelf for years. Sorry, couldn't read the brand on the flux anymore, Golden-something or other. Cost next to nothing...
    (BTW the cable came from an old hang glider)
