Default Looking for minimalist hand controls for my 99xl

Im ditching my stock handlebar controls, switches and wires, looking for new hand controls that aren't bulky and basically a clamp and a lever for my 1999 1200 XL.
All that i find are big and bulky, made for stock switches or are very expensive like the Joker stuff.
Will an early style clutch lever accept my clutch cable on the 1999 xl?
Or please turn me on to a set of handlebar controls that fit that may be chopper or multi fit.

Thanks

Low Brow Customs, Chopper Supply, Chopper Warehouse. Some of this stuff looks pretty chessey (the old triumph chopper controls), but they work.

I really Like this one but am not sure if it will work with my 99 sporty cables. And I would need a matching front brake assembly, but don't see one. Im interested to hear what any of you have gone to using when ditching the stock controls. Im going to not be running and buttons or wiring on my bars.

just ditch your control switch pods. Then cut down the brackets on your stockers. Cheap easy.
