Default Real Dogleg Levers - 1977 XLCR

The standard brake and clutch levers on the XLCR are made for someone with extremely long fingers. I wear a size large glove and it's still a reach. Has anyone produced a brake or clutch lever that is at least 1" closer to the grip than the stock levers? Just so it's clear, this is a machine in the era where the brake master cylinder is integral with the left-side electrics on the handlebar, so I need to retain the stock master and controls.
