My Shovelhead has the solid wire cable and internal twist like yours. I used picture hanging twisted wire to make a new inner. I used old barrels and soldered them to the wire. Worked ok, but I bought and installed a new single wire cable anyhow. The carb end of my S&S "B" is held on with an adjustable barrel, the kind with a screw that pinches the cable into the barrel.
For those confused with the description or photo, this is the old style internal grip cable. The lug you can see on the bottom photo fits into a spiral slot in the grip assembly. When twisted, the lug and cable gets pulled towards end of bar, opening carb.
I ride like an old guy that wants to get older.
