    That's a bummer. I would go at the throttle cable one 1st. Sounds cheaper!:p

    Just do what Hobbti or Richard would do; buy a new bike.

    you could also take the good throttle cable off of one and put it on the other , or take the tires and do a swap

    OK so no one has ask, where did the wheels go? Or did you mean that the tires are worn out? I don't think I would start canabilizing one bike for the other, the throttle cable would get you back on the road quick and can't cost more than 25-30 bucks.
