Default Wicked Fat Chance north roads handle bar change

I am in the process of putting north roads style handle bars on my 1990 wicked fat chance and I found out that I need longer brake and gear cables. What is the original length of both the brake and gear cables so I can figure out how much more length to get.

There is no set length for housing, best bet is let a local shop cut it to the proper length for you. Not familiar with your new bars but new inner cables should be long enough for most situations.

Thank you for the suggestion I appreciate it. The handlebar I got is the type used on old 3 speed Raleighs.
