Default Re: market for stretch cruiser MB's?

the ultra-tall bars proved to be the throttle cable's nemesis. I cant find a vendor that has super-long ones for a reasonable price ($25.00 for 60" long, plus $14.00 to're out of your mind), so I made my own. Yeah, thats right....I spliced two together. dumb.

Anyway, just used a elec. wire connector. i crimped the heck out of it, and with all my strength, couldnt pull them apart. throttle cable doesnt have nearly that much stress, like the clutch cable. Left 1" of play on the throttle side of the red connector, for movement.

The pic of various metal bits-n-pieces, will be taken to the band saw, and drilled out for mounting, as soon as i have a few minutes to figure out whats-going-where.
