Has anyone got a spare bracket? It is off an M88 engine.

Had a little kink put in my brace to avoid the bracket.

I've made one. All I'm waiting for now are the bits to make up a throttle cable.

I've made the bracket and a friend is making the adjuster.

I need this cable crimp for the throttle end of the cable. Anyone any ideas where I could get it? UPDATE:- I've made one.

The grommets etc. were obtained from BMW.
