spoke to them briefly and they need the old one as a pattern and prices quoted were eye watering !!

 

just wondered if there was any alternatives out there

I used to go to the cycle shop down the road and buy a length of outer cable, a cable with one nipple and a screw on nipple. Unfortunately the shop is now closed but if you go to any cycle shop they wil sell outer cable to any length from a roll and bicycle gear cables which are quite long enough. They will have a cable cutter to make the ends nice and tidy. They should also have the ends to tidy the cable. Screw on nipples are easy enough to come by. Do it right and it is as good as something that costs 10 times as much. Use solder as well as the screw on device if you want to, but I have never had one fail.

I'm with the above ré Solder etc. Never had one fail. Suggestion, Google find cable from a "custom" something, ie high bars as standard. So many ends are generic, Transalp (older), pretty much old school. Change one end if necessary etc.

Have you sorted it yet? Found an extra long 90's honda cable today.
