Subject:Re-laquering control cables Date:Thu Nov 29 13:24:31 2012
Has anyone had experience in restoring clutch, front brake, and throttle cable cloth covering? Seems like pretty straightforward: cotton type covering then painted in black lacquer. Obviously, the asphalt wire loom material is far too coarse so curious if anyone else has ever managed to source the proper material. It's got to be available since there are reproduction cables being produced which are close to the original covering. I've got several cable sets I think are worth restoring rather than purchasing repros.

Thanks in advance!
