That is a nice bike you have. Looks like Euro wheels???
You are using what looks like clip-on handle bars that
are much shorter than the stock bars. Depending on your
mechanical skills, the cables can be shortened to work on that bike.
If there is a bike shop nearby maybe they can shorten the cables.
One word of caution, when measuring the length of cables you need,
take the measurements with the handle bars turned all the way to the left
for the clutch cable.
Do not ask me how I know this.
Keep us posted on your progress.

Your bike is very cool!
I usually do shopping on eBay when I look for the second-hand parts. But you if leave in Europe you can also try search Parts.fo, it searches among the online offers in Europe. Very often it works for me, and it works better if you know exactly what you want, barcode or number of detail.

I bought some old CB400 cables for my project, they have same ends and are shorter.
They are cheap and sure you can find and try them.
