seems like a standard grip for a grip shifter....any LBS or a giant dealer if you are looking for a giant brand i imagine.

no.

measure the distance from the bar end to the begining edge of the grip shifters before you order.

these may work:

So it looks like i can just get a standard grip shifter grip for the right side and the side that doesn't have a shifter at all , i will obviously just use a standard grip?

I just bought this bike used for my son's birthday and i am trying to dress it up a little before i give it to him. Thanks for any help.
