Where can I get cables and housing for a bianchi

I'm in the process of building an 88 Bianchi and need either blue or celeste cables. The bike will have Campy Ergo shifters.
I saw the Jagwire ProRoad one Ebay for about 30 bucks. I imagine these are the correct ones I will need for the build?

Any other recommendations...

Sometimes jagwire and campy don't get along -- the brake cable heads are too large for the socket. You can sand them down a bit and/or grease the cable heads, otherwise you'll never get them out.

Bontrager (Trek) derailleur cable heads fit some versions of Campy ergo shifters. Your LBS should be able to source most colors of housing.

So, looks like I will need Campy specific wire. I'll email the seller and post his recommendations.
