I had worked at Century MC in San Pedro. At one point I was commuting to Hwood from Pedro in a car, no bike. I got a used '77 R60/7 at Century. I didn't know much about BMWs. My friend Cindy Rutherford suggested I get myself over to Matt's to get some help for setting up the old Beemer. Matt really helped me.

Is this the cable you wrote about? http://nfieldgear.com/enfield-store/maintenance-repair/cables/clutch-cable-5-speed.html The PO said he installed a clutch. I'll talk to him this week and ask him about it.I found all my old Whitworth/BS wrenches and sockets. YAAAAY!
"The seems in OK condition."Duh. The cap is in OK condition. The cable is stiff. The cable and cap are about 20" in total length, starting from the Lucas coil to the end of the cap.
