Peter White Cycles offers dynamo lighting cable and the european mini spade connectors frequently needed for dynamo light hookups. If you know the lengths needed then he can make up complete cables too IIRC. Typical bike wiring is 22 gauge wire. The best wire IMO is the Schmidt SON dynamo wire that Peter White imports. It is a very strong but flexible semi coax style of wire with the ground connector wires wrapped around the hot wires which make up the center conductor.
With modern LED lights double conductor wiring is much preferred rather than trying to do the old style wiring that used the frame as the return path and ground.
