I am starting the next batch, currently have 7 spots left. I will no longer offer them without being in cups. It helps me keep the fit and finish better.
$165 shipped for a set of handles.

Can you message me the steps on paying you and shipping?

My PayPal is listed in the first post. I ship via USPS. I started taking orders yesterday and it usually fills up in about a week. It takes 2-3 week for me to complete building the handles and then I post tracking to PayPal. You receive the handles 2-3 days after that.

Is this group by only for the metal handle or does it come with the whole plastic back part fitted into it?
I only offer them assembled in the plastic bezel now. This is for both sides ready to paint and install.

Those of you with spots in this batch, All welding is complete and assembly has started, I ran out of hardware and that will be here tomorrow. (I have gone to 1 length of bolt for both sides) Hardware is now black and uses plastic washers.

To be clear, the lever is not part of the aluminum handles that I make, it is the oem/aftermarket lever that is with the original handles. I am working on some thicker replacement levers that will wrap around the aluminum arm and eliminate the flex.

See the attached picture.

This the the 2nd reported failure of that lever.

Interesting, is that an OEM or aftermarket handle bracket? Can't imagine how much you'd have to force things to bend that, but good on you for expanding the design!

The oem ones are thicker, i got a pattern part and it was thinner so stick with the oem lever! Its much stronger for the job it does

The aftermarket ones vary by set, even between sides I have seen variation.
The ones I am making are 14g stainless and have a tab that will fold around the arm. The next weak link will be the plastic from the bezel(not anything I can do about the people that break those..
