Removing the throttle sleeve will probably destroy the original handlebar. If that doesn't matter, then saw off the end, chuck the sleeve in a lathe, and turn down what's left of the bar. Brazing to the new handlebar will turn the chrome really blue, but if you're careful with the heat you may be able to buff it out. It would likely be better to strip, braze, then rechrome. The job requires equipment and some level of skill.

Contact Tom Faber at Faber Cycle. I believe he sells the repair sleeves for stock bars which can be adapted to anything. Also Easy Russ on eBay has them from time to time.
