Migawd John! That Harley is going to be ultra authentic. We'll have to smear some vaseline on a lens and take some beefcake pictures when you're all done.

Beefcakes, of John? No, say it ain't so! We use cloth covered stuff at work everyday for -48 DC. Get it from Greybar. If you've got a description or pic or two, I might be able to help. I've got a small box of "ends and pieces" out on the truck that ususally end up in the dumpster after a month or two. Grey, black & green cloth jacket. Does that help any?

Rats, no. Mine is all solid color. Grey, black, red & green. We use "00" down to about 26 guage. Most of the small stuff is plastic jacket. Try Greybar, Grainger or whatever Sprint North Supply morphed into (Google search?). Phone companies use this stuff every day. From what I understand, it's becoming outrageously expensive as most of the production moves overseas. We are now paying about 3x what we were 5 years ago for copper. I don't buy the stuff at work, just use it. I'm passing on what the "InGinEars" and bean counters tell me.
