Hi all, I am looking to make custom parking brake cable and clutch cable for car restoration. Have been searching the web and not finding what I want. Who sells bulk cable and housing?

Not exactly bulk but McMaster Carr does have push/pull cables with a variety of options here (http://www.mcmaster.com/#push/pull-control-cable/=11jjnar). You might be able to make up what you need or get a start.

I haven't looked around for this in a long long time, but have you tried vendors of motorcycle stuff, such as shops that cater to choppers? I think they have a fairly high demand for custom cables, and may be a good place to start looking.

If all else fails, go to a Ford dealer and buy a brake cable of a F250 crew cab with full size box. There will be enough for 2 cars.

I called control cables and they will only sell pre-made or custom made to order cables. I will call motionpro tomorrow and see what they have to say.

You may have to look up one of their distributors in order to get components.
I find power transmission and industrial supply outlets usually have access to these types of parts as so much of their business is aimed at one-offs or custom installations.
