Extended Cables?? 82 Aspencade

Post by BikeBuilders »



Anyone know where I can get extended cables for my 82 Aspencade? Looking to add mini apes, but my stock cables are about 5 inches too short. Thanks

I've had custom length cables made before for this sort of use, but after a couple times when the cables came in an inch or two too long etc. and I ended up pulling them apart to redo them myself, I thought; "this is silly, why am I paying someone to do this so that I can re-do it again properly?" So now I just buy a chunk of cable, some ends, and make them up myself to whatever length I need. It's not too difficult.

Thanks for the info guys. I am adding 16" apes to help size the bike to me (6'1") a little better and need to do cables / brake lines. Since making is easy, that's likely what I'll do.

Looks like I can get the brake lines from the website listed above too.

Have a great day and fingers crossed for an early spring!

Cheers,
Keith
