Info needed from RD60 owners - front brake cable measurements
« on: February 19, 2021, 08:28:44 AM »
Thanks to rodders and NivagRD for their help on two of my cables.

I've now just got one GREY front brake cable left to id. I think that it is off a 1973 to 1975 RD60 (and maybe Euro RD50) and was wondering if there is a RD60 owner here who could confirm their cable dimensions. The details on mine are as follows:-

Outer diameter of cable cover - 6mm
Length of cable cover, between outer sides of ferrules - 970mm
Length of inner cable, between outer sides of nipples - 1080mm

There are no extra layers on the outer cover, to protect from chafing.

Many thanks.

Alan, I guess the main challenge is actually finding any other owners of an RD60!
This could be worth a try - I know there is an owner of one who lives no more than a mile from me.
His name's Adam, but I've only made brief contact with him through this forum earlier last year some time.
I've never seen him back on here since, but it may be worth sending a PM to adamdannan85.
1982 Candy red RD200DX
1983 Yellow/black RD200DX (resprayed and previously owned by another forum member)
1986 White/red RD350F1 YPVS - owned since 1987...yes, honestly!!
