Mega ST keyboard cable replacement

Hi folks,

the coating on my Mega ST's keyboard cable gets stiff and brittle (or is already cracked). Has anybody found a source for a reasonable priced replacement?

I found a lot of (telephone) cables with a matching connector when googling, but they usually don't seem to use spiral cables then.

Look for a RJ12 cable 1:1 with 6 wires ...

I bought mine from Centurion-Tech. Really nice. Olivier has them too, but I don't know if his cord is curly. No pics there. Coolnovelties has them listed but haven't had any stock in months. And the cord is black.

Follow up: I checked with him, his cable is flat (and white).
