Motobecane throttle tube

I’ve got a 79 50v I’m working on. I ordered a new set of grips and when I installed the throttle grip I found that the throttle tube is about 1” shorter than the grip. I tried to move the controls farther inboard but due to the curvature of the bars, the throttle hangs up. Can anyone give me the length of a stock tube? I’m thinking the original owner had baby hands and cut the bars and throttle down to fit their little mitts. ThNks

They are all that way. Go aftermarket controls or leave it as is.

Good to know. I’d hate to track down another and have it be exactly the same. It just feels weird while riding. Thanks
