Don,

I found this website while killing time in the long off season here in Minnesota. It appears to be able to supply all of the DIN coded wire you seek, with the exception of the smallest gauges. They can also supply connectors and terminals. I have not purchased anything from them. https://eagleday.stores.yahoo.net/neauwi.html

Should have said, I don't know that Bob's has the wire, but they are the place that would be my first and best bet since they offer other necessary vintage repair parts.

The correct size for general wiring is 1.0 mm2 (16-18 AWG), which is good for 16A.

I buy from RI Wiring Service:
http://www.riwire.com/Catalogs/sup/pages/wire.htm. They have most (but not
all) airhead wire colors. Please note that their "light green" is what our
airheads need. RI Regular green is too dark. Generally speaking, if there is
a choice of light and dark, light it is.

There's also http://www.eagleday.com/auwi2.html
