Honey Pot Soldering Tool Specifications:

There are lots of inadequate ways to build a cable. At Revival, we believe that where safety is concerned, just getting the job done is NOT a viable option. Motorcycle cable-building deserves a truly professional approach or none at all.

For this newest all-encompassing method, we tracked down the manufacturers for the various components needed to produce control cables at a professional level, then gathered those components into an affordable simple-to-use kit. Making cables isn’t actually all that difficult when you have the right tools and materials. We provide all of that, along with accompanying written and video instructions on just how to do it right the first time.

The Revival Honey Pot Kit provides a soldering pot with enough solder and flux to assemble dozens of cables before you’ll need to re-up on materials.

The added benefit is that this kit has other uses. It can also be used for tinning wire strands, dip-soldering electronic connections, and small PCB boards. (Instruction on much of that is coming SOON.) So put this in your cart now, start taking your cable game seriously, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to be a PRO.

Other tools that we sell to do this the "right way” are the Bird Caging Tool from Venhill, and Park Tools Cable and Housing Cutter, both of which we sell and support.


  • Dip solder pot with 36mm diameter crucible, temperature range 200-480ºc
  • 100gr Sn63/Pb37 - tin/lead, flux-free solder
  • 10ml noncorrosive liquid pine rosin flux

Bird Cage Tool Specifications:

“Bird-caging” is a crucial process thats performed prior to solder bonding a cable ferrule to a control cable. This process creates a large, knot-like (or bird cage) formation at the tip of the wire which promotes a tighter solder bond and provides superior pull-out resistance so the cable doesn’t depend solely on the solder bond.

The only tool of its kind on the planet. This kit is based off the bird cage tool used by the legendary Venhill Engineering UK in their own cable manufacturing process, with a few minor tweaks to accommodate garage/workshop use. Simple yet robust and built to last a lifetime. 

The perfect tool to compliment our Revival Cycles Signature Universal Throttle Cable Kit.

***You will need a vice to hold the jaws and clamp the cable. Then use a hammer to stamp the supplied punch to form the 'birdcage'

Would absolutely buy again!

Had a hard time figuring out exactly what to do as it didn’t come with instructions for the birdcage tooling but it’s very straight forward! Practiced 2-3 times on a scrap piece of cable and now I’ve made 4-5 different cables! Absolutely worth every penny! High quality and easy to use!

From our customers


100% impressed over and over again by Jeff & Co at Revival. They’re patient and kind no matter the enquiry (currently resto-modding an R100/7 and have LOTS of questions about the Motogadget rewire) and go out of their way to offer creative solutions and out of the box thinking. I will forever return and recommend Revival.

I cannot recommend Revival Cycles enough. Not only do they have a great assortment of gear and accessories but they provide superb customer service. I was having some difficulty making it work... Jeff pointed out what I was missing and also provided schematics to make it work. Thank you guys very kindly, your crew rocks.
