Hello Kitworth,you can get the engine control cables(clutch,gear and throttle cables)from Villiers Spares.They supply new old stock.The front brake cable will have to be made up,perhaps by a motorcyle shop or you might be lucky with ebay(look under Norman spares,in the motorcycle parts section).The other possibility is a company called Mopedland.Let us know how you get on Paul

I have bought several cables on e bay but The Nippys I have have different front brake cables. I am having to resort to modifying a cable and using a solderless nipple so I can adjust the length of the inner.
On another subject I have had a pair of white handle bar grips made by Jeff Hunter Engineering e mail jeffalanhunter@aol.com. The only thing now is I am worried about getting them dirty.

Hello Motorwiz.DO NOT USE A SOLDERLESS NIPPLE ON A BRAKE CABLE.They can slip and you could find yourself with no brakes and even at 30 MPH that could hurt.If the MOT man saw it the bike would fail.Cheers Paul

I bought this bike taxed and tested. The front brake cable was attached to the brake lever with an electrical connection not even a solderless nipple. I have not had problems with them if properly fitted. The twist grip which is original does not have a nipple either but a grub screw.

finding some new 19'' tyres for the bike: c.wylde and sons stock 2.00 x 19/2.25 x 19 Mitas (Czech R)
for only £14 each! Quality is good, what's not to like at that price?
