Then I spotted an old Honda centerstand, with a landau shaped foot lever.

I cut the hollow tubular lever off and welded it to a piece of 1" round bar.

Came out nice woth the curves and ball tip. Still gotta center drill the barstock to lighten it and paint it shiny silver :~) Check out pics.Attachment 32102
