I would use Carrot Cycle in Lincoln for cables, they can make or sell you cable outers, nipples and adjusters after that you just need a 25watt plus soldering iron.

For missing levers I always go to e-bay or autojumbles.


Hope that helps

Best regards

Probably not much help but shown below is the set-up for the handlebars on a 1936 model, which may help you to identify/locate some (clamp shown bottom left in first picture):

I am doing the same project so if you want any pictures let me know. Maybe not a complete rebuild though.

Unless it's yours did you see the incomplete Cruiser on eBay ?

I see the incomplete bike sold for about 750. Be interested to know if it is one of our members who bought it and whether they plan to cannibalise it or complete it. Based on my own experience of sourcing parts they are hard to find.
