Question Looking for specific grips for '91 z50

I've got a 1991 Honda z50 for the girlfriend to ride. A couple months ago i took the bike apart and repainted almost everything black but put pink stripes on the front of rear fenders.

That been said, i'm trying to find a set of pink grips for the bike and i'm pretty sure they aren't the same standard size as most newer model 50s. This bike has stock bars on it and they seem to be a slightly larger diameter and shorter overall length. I'm mainly compairing this to my xr50 with the tall bar kit on it.

If i can't find pink grips i'll put a black set on. I'm just not having any luck.

Any suggestions on where to look would help.

Thanks

I've found that other than the crappy OEM grips you can get from places like classichonda.com i'm outta luck and just have to make a regular set of aftermartket grips work. Thanks

Try a bicycle shop, but then I guess the throttle side wouldnt be bigger, but they may work?

Ya that's the thing. The left side can be any length really, but the throttle side is about a 1/2 to 3/4 inch shorter than normal since it's stock.

I'll probably end up with a tiddy bit of hang off thats all. Which is no biggie but if you take a spill, it would be easier to tear i suppose. We'll see.
