Any ideas about where to find white outer brake cable,I've found an old peugeot for my wife to try,but it needs a bit of fettling,probably convert to straight bars as well

I asked a similar question recently:

In the end though, I went for some lovely silver effect stuff that sets ff the polished lugs very nicely!

I ordered some Tioga white cables off ebay USA for $4.99 for 2 full lengths plus 1.6mm inners. Paid a little for postage (to be expected) but am very happy with the overall.

I got my last lot from ebay uk. It was actually complete cable, but very cheap. There's some 35" long ones on there now.

Most 'traditional' bike shops carry a roll of black or white brake outer.

It's probably harder to find white gear outer though ! (I've kept hold of my old Shimano SIS rear outer...)

I got a complete set (break and gear) from Whisker's in Waltham Cross.

It was a couple of years ago, but it might be worth a go.
