Check the various 'for sale' sections of these forums, it's not uncommon for people to part out their bike instead of opting to do repair work on the older shadows. There's a guy currently parting out an 84, you could shoot him a PM (I'm not sure if the one on that bike will fit the 87 model, but it's possible).

Another option (since this cable isn't manufactured anymore) is to go through motion pro - they can custom make virtually any cable, and from what I hear have reasonable prices.

link to their website: http://www.motionpro.com/motorcycle/custom/

If you use em let us know how their service and pricing is!

Default choke cable

Try Pinwall Cycle in Ohio - I've not purchased anything from them yet, but recall they are parting out an 86 VT700 and seem to have an abundance of used parts for these older Shadows - I called about some other items and they are very helpful.

http://www.pinwallcycle.com/

they have an eBay store also.

Welcome to the world of finding parts for old Shadows - fun but challenging sometimes!

Okay, update... ive called a few bike yards around houston (near my home) and found none... pinwall does not have one in stock either... ebay only has a few pre 1986 which are different... its a little frustrating being stuck one step from the finish line. like i said if anyone has one I'd buy it without question... anyone have a european hook up, I'd gladly convert some green backs into euros at this point... tho i do hate to....


ill contact motion pro on monday and we'll see

Yea, i found a few sites online that advertised the cable and even called a few of them they all said they are out of stock. did not get a chance to call motion pro yet, but from what i see on their website, the choke cable ends (goes into carbs) doesnt even have an option from their site. ill reserve judgement until after i call someone.... in the mean time, still looking... anyone have one!?!?!?
