What is so great about the Barnett front brake cables? In my opinion, several characteristics make them the best choice available today.

Charlie Mullendore of Antietam Classic Cycle worked closely with Barnett to get a replacement brake cable made for his two-leading shoe front brake with civilian bars.

Please Note! Charlie Mullendore does not sell Barnett cables. Please contact Barnett directly.

Here is the information from Barnett and Charlie:

Most of the time we keep prints of the cables on file for future reference or it goes into a temporary file. If we have the information on the bike model so we know what the cable fits, we usually save it. We should still have the prints for your cables and I will make sure that we save it. It's never a bad idea to send the cable(s) just to make sure that the new ones are correct. If you can, let me know what the year and model of Moto Guzzi it was and I will have Joe attach it to the print for future reference. If you or any of your friends ever have a question about a cable, call us at 805-642-9435 and ask for Joe. If Joe isn't available, ask for Mark. They both work directly with the cable dept.

I've sent all the information from the invoice and what models the same cable will fit. They've been a real pleasure to work with, prompt responses to my e-mails, great product, finished when they said it would be. I'll measure my old cable soon and post the dimensions if still needed also. Cheers
