All i have in stock is DARK GREY 8 conductor spiral shielded.
Its about 3/8 in diameter.
Because its shielded it would be $ 1.50 per ft plus shipping.

Thanks, also, TikTak, but I'm going to put together an order at McMaster just because there are some other things I need anyway.

I hadn't. I searched on Google and found that Mouser has a great on-line catalog. I was able to do a search for cable/multi-conductor and then start filtering from there. Once I got some matches though (pretty broad: no spec for sheilding, colorjacket material, voltage, etc.), I was distressed to see that the cheapest I could get away with was 100 feet at $87.50 plus S&H/tax. Everything else was >$200!
But thanks, that's one I hadn't known about before.

Did you check Mouser or Allied on line?

Well my immediate need is for about 12 feet of 6 conductor, 20 AWG, stranded.
Overall diameter would be whatever that works out to.. With that gauge and number of conductors, I'm guessing it will be less than 1/2" and should be fine. A black outer jacket would blend in best.
Please PM me with costs involved.

I can get just about anything.
What is it you need to make the job perfect for you? I have too may types of cable in stock to list them all.
Also what overall diameter and color?

What gauge of wire would you suggest?
BTW, you can buy that kind of cable from theatrical supply houses online in almost any length you need.

I used a 20 wire cable from old car phone installation. And I ran this cable under the gas tank from front to under the seat. This way I have ready wires from front to rear and I don't need to strip the bike that much for each farkle installation.

Do you care what the color code is?
How much you looking for?
I do have a source and should be able to help you out.

SO now that I've started thinking about adding things and re-wiring the things already there, I decided to pretty up the wiring. One thing I'd like to do is use cables (multiple individual wires in a single jacket) in some of the places that individual wires are run.
Problem is: I can't find any!
Checking Radio Shack, Fry's Electronics, Home Depot/Lowes, etc. to try to find six-conductor, 20 AWG, stranded cables has not worked. I found some on line, but a 100-250 foot spool is really overkill.
Raffy suggested that I get a keyboard extension cable* from RS, but before I cannibalize one of those, I thought I'd ask the general membership if anyone has a source.
*= And a darn clever idea that is, too. It's my #1 plan at the moment unless something else comes up.
