I'm looking for recommendations for control cables for my BSA A65 Lightning.

Clutch, front brake, twin throttle and choke.

Also speedometer and rev counter cables.

I will be using the western style USA handlebars and if it is a case of having them custom made then so be it.

I would also be happy to make up my own cables if anyone can point me in the direction of a decent supplier for the components required.

Is there any difference between the cables used for the standard chromed steel levers and the alloy ones?

Thanks again.

I always make my own cables. It means they fit exactly, they have swivel barrel nipples in the levers to avoid stress and breakage and they have bends (noodles) to allow throttle cables to follow the bars instead of dangling,
