Tell us about yourself!
I'd be inclined to pack out the hole where the cable enters, and surround the cable there, with something like Sugru or even build up hot glue - to support the cable repair.
I love it. I have only one suggestion, and that is to replace the tyres with some nice new ones, preferably from the hot ridding/drag racing scene with raised lettering. Beyond that it's a marvel, I have the tools and patience just not the time. Or the beard.
Rodding not ridding. iOS grrr.
