Derailler Cables

I'm trying to change the shift cables on my old Schwinn Super Sport, but am not sure what shift cables to buy. I know the ends on the shift cables currently installed are different than the ends on the shift cables for indexed shifters. So, where do you guys get your cables from? What type do you use?

Thanks

Just realized this should be in the other c&V forum, sorry for the mistake, not sure if there is a way I can move it.

You can find the disc end rather than the barrel end on ebay. Or, buy the Bell cable kit for $7 at WallyWorld, the cables are double ended.

If your Super Sport is '74 or earlier then the shift cables are the old Huret type with a disc end. You can get new ones from bike shops like Harris for $4 each, but there is an eBay seller offering NOS Huret cables in quantities of 10 for $12, or 20 for only $17.40 (current sale price), including shipping.
