Who sells deep red cable housing?

I am getting a 1974 Motobecane Grand Record frame and need some deep red brake cable housing (lined). All I have seen on Ebay and VO is light, washed-out red, which will just not do--I need a Coca Cola/Fire engine/Ferrari red. Thanks in advance for your leads

kroozer I have more red housing than I will ever use. A medium red I would say. Like this: https://www.jensonusa.com/Jagwire-4m...yABEgJrFfD_BwE
If this works for you let me know how much you need and it's yours for the price of postage.

Shimano Red
I don't do: disks, tubeless, e-shifting, or bead head nymphs.

My Jagwire red is just a tad darker than medium red and has faded a bit. I bet most reds fade.

Do not trust color rendition on a computer.

My advice - buy local where you can see and touch the cable before buying.

Try Porkchop BMX, great looking cables for vintage bikes. Also has an eBay store.
