Brake Cable Housing

Any good source for YELLOW brake cable housing for my 70's bike. I'm looking for housing without any letters or marking of the maker stamped on the outside

Jagwire, but it has the logo. Good finding any quality housing that doesn't have a logo. You could probably remove it w/ lacquer thinner or some other solvent if you really felt like you had to.

Porkchop BMX, online or eBay.
Possibly Velo Orange.

I second Jagwire. The logo on it could probably be easily removed with a scouring pad.

I usually buy the gray Shimano housing from eBay. If I needed a color like red or yellow in only 5', I would go to my LBS, where it's basically the same cost, and you can actually see the shade before you buy it. If I wanted to remove the label, I would just use acetone on a paper towel.

I second the Porkchop BMX, online or eBay. The cables on this bike were sourced there, no labels and just as slick as anything from Shimano or Jagwire, which I have used on some of my other builds.
