Thread: Cable Question?

    Default Cable Question?

    My good friend is building a triumph chop and has a 6 over front end. We need to find a brake cable for a 1970 Triumph TR6 Trophy, with a 6-inch over front end from a 73 Triumph TR5T/BSA B50...we think.
    Does any one know of anywhere to get some over stock length cable? A shop or website.?There is a place in Denver here that made cables, but no one there is answering.

    We may want to go taller with the bars someday, as this is my bud's first chop, so I'm sure he'd like to mess with some bar configurations.

    Some pics...

    Most decent shops can make custom length cables. I just went through all this. Making your own isn't that hard

    Was looking more for a brake line that would take a fair amount of pressure. Especially in a panic situation.

    You can order ANY cable or hose you may require, directly from Venhill. (*I highly recommend Venhill (Featherlight) cables)
    http://www.venhill.co.uk/
    I am pretty sure they offer cables in a 6" over configuration as a standard item, but if you need something even longer, you can order "custom cables" length/ inner cable material / teflon lined/ outer sheathing color/ fittings- connectors. You can send them your old one, or make them a drawing/diagram of what ever you need and they will make it for you.
    Yes it may cost a bit more with shipping, and yes, it may take a few days longer to arrive, but your buying directly from the manufacturer, not a middle man. (I most generally prefer to buy directly from who makes the item)
    I would also highly recommend getting a new clutch cable, and throttle cable at the same time !

    Off the subject of cables, ya ever gunna resend me the paypal info, I REALLY,REALLY,REALLY NEED a couple more SM shirts, and sum stickerz too !

    Oh yeah , your pics are not showing up........I'm sad , because I love pics.
