Hello,

I am currently in the process of restoring a '67 WDB40 and was wondering if anyone had found a supplier of the original control cables that include the grease nipples. I am considering simply purchasing aftermarket cables but ideally would like to put the original ones on if possible.

Any advice or people's experience in this would be much appreciated,
Many thanks,
Mark

And they are oilers not greasers.
Fill the cable with grease & you would need 3 hands to pull the clutch in.

Also try Burton bike bits. Some time ago they had some original cables with the oilers in. They might still have some. The oiling points should also have rubber tubes covering them and the cable to prevent grit ingress, or at least mine did.
