I am currently undergoing an extensive restoration process of a 1976 Honda MR 175 Elsinore. I am not necessarily looking for OEM parts...I am looking to make this bike look good and ride smooth. The throttle cable on my bike currently is bent to all hell and needs replaced. I have looked online and order new throttle cable and grips off of eBay, but the cable was short.

Where can I find a new throttle cable for my MR 175? I would greatly appreciate any advice, help, or links!

The early CR125M uses the same cable as the MR175, so this should work:

Thank you Ray!

I just ordered the cable. Now, let's hope it is here soon! My bike is literally a few steps away from being up and running!
