Good luck with OEM. They are scarce. They are interchangeable with Mafac Competition straddle cables, which are slightly longer, and only slightly less difficult to find.

If it's not for a show bike, you can make a suitable substitute with a standard straddle wire, a brass nipple, and a 4-way crimper.
