I'm struggling to find any white Benotto tape, I can see silver. Anyone know where I get hold of some. I also need some white brake cable outer, again I can see Jagwire, but I think they have a 'weird' bit to cope with being wrapped. I need stuff for 'out the top' levers. And the stuff seems a bit short?

Oh and another finishing touch. The hex nut for nutted calipers, is that M8?

Decathlon has white brake and gear cable outers. Hopefully it doesn't have b*twin written on it.

I found some white Benotto here it's not the original cello stuff, but more of a vinyl. I'm on the hunt for white housings too.

Here is my Cinelli stem and bars wrapped like they were back in '83 when I built the bike. I'm in the process of restoring it.

ChainReaction. Goodridge is £3.49 a meter and whilst it is a sod to cut and fairly stiff in use its woven inner wont compress. Gives excellent braking but you may need frame protection patches. Used it for ages and there is nothing comes anywhere near.
