Best and cheapest is to do what SH said, find old H-D bars w/ internal throttle any make 'em your own. There's many for cheap on eBay or if you peruse the swaps.
Just know that some of the 'oldies' are push type as opposed to pull. You'll find that out pretty quick.

Is the internal throttle called somithing else? or is it just allways referred to as internal throttle?

Its going on my minibike I want to use a schiwnn stingray grip and also hide the throttle to make it look clean/simple.

harley throttles push the cable, actually it's a single stiff wire. The old Z-50 hondas among others, had 7/8 bars with an internal throttle and used a normal braided wire pull cable. that's your best bet for a minibike. just cut the whole end off the honda bar and graft it to the end of your bar.

I'd imagine you could use the bars (the inside part of them anyhow) from an old Vespa or Lamberreta (sp?) as something to go by at least.
I'm not sure about the new ones but I know the 50's & 60's Vespas had an internal throttle cable.....AND clutch cable.....And you shift with your left hand.....blah, blah, blah.

I actually have these throttle parts for the Honda setup sitting in a box in my basement if you are interested (ended up not going with internal throttle). PM me if you are, I would rather them go to a journal member than Egay.
