I fabbed up a kickstart lever for the DKW, from scratch. It started as a couple chunks of 1/2" x 1" aluminum rectangle, and a piece of 1/2" aluminum bar. Used the Tig welder, mini-lathe, and damn near every other tool in the garage, including lots of hand filing to get a smooth action on the rotating part.

Everything is rubber mounted, and I picks up about 1" of ground clearance over the older setup.
Quieter/mellower at light throttle, but a bit raspier when you get into it. They look nice too.
