Smile Cable extenders or Custom cables

Hello all,

I didn't know exactly where to put this post so I figured put it here.

My bike:
1998 Vulcan VN750

Issue:
I have had 18" custom Ape Hangers made and I need to find cable extenders or get some custom cables.

I have been told that the only place that I can get them is Barnett Cables. I am sure that there is some other place than California to get them. I live in Virginia Beach, Va. and dont want to wait for shipping or pay more for shipping.

If ANYONE knows where I can get this, please let me know.

your cheapest method is to get your cables from Flanders (http://www.flanders.com) and make them yourself... i have a write up in my scribd docs... check my sig link. or go to your local Bike dealership... preferably a Harley shop since they do a lot of custom work. Your brake lines you can get from JP Cycles... they sell all the over sized cables and brake lines for up to 12" over stock length.

Thumbs up Thanks for the reply

Slim,

Thank you for responding to my post! I didn't even realize that I could make my own cables. I tried to find you DYI on making them and couldn't. Can you post a link to it so I can see it?

And thank you again!

Eddie

Here is the link... http://www.scribd.com/doc/29069303/D...-Length-Cables. Sorry it wasn't in my Vulcan Docs collection. Scribd got rid of the groups section, so i am having to go through and add stuff into collections.
