Cable Housing

All,

I am looking for a source for some cable housing for a late '70's Colnago I'm rebuilding. Specifically yellow. Can anyone give me any leads?

Thanks,

Kurt

The Lick bike pricing is about half the pricing of Loose Screws.

But Satbuilder you didn't say if you were going with friction or indexed systems. I learned the hard way this stuff doesn't play nice with indexed anycompany. Works beautifully with all my older rebuilds though.

+1 The translucent housing is what I would buy by the roll! Tranny yellow, blue, red, green, violet. That stuff looks so good with Bennoto.

It's a friction system.

Try to document the rebuild on the forum. We would love to see pics as you go through this process!
Cheers,
Gomango
