I'm using a brake lever off of an old mongoose bmx bike for a foot throttle. I have a spring for a return but I can't figure out how to attach the cable to the white plastic peice where the original cable was. Any ideas?

You can run a zip tie or the bike cable (if you have enough of cable) thru the top of the plastic piece thru the bottom and just put the original cable bolt/stopper/clamp back on.

Or you take the original thottle cable, cut then end off, and clamp the end of your bicycle together sorta like this
Bike Cable.......................Old throttle cable
----------------------(clamp)---------------Z
The Z would be the correct piece that goes into it.
If your on the mobile version of the site, you may want to switch to the computer version for this.
