Default Handle to replace rear windshield wiper

I am looking for a replacement handle for the rear windshield, BUT the one I am looking for is different than the one they advertise here. I am looking for the wind up style that they use to use on old toys. I saw one at the Modesto Cruiserfest this last weekend and it looked so cool. It looked really big. Got any ideas where to get one?

I've seen what your looking for but it was custom made by the owners. The only two handles that are available are the "T" and the long handle. I've also seen different size "key" handles which means whoever has them had them made up. Maybe you can check around at a toy store or maybe a place that sells skates for a key and have it attached to a bolt that will fit into the rear hatch hole?

Hi Mary, I too was impressed with the Wind Up Key in Modesto. So impressed I came home and made my own. I went to Brea with it last weekend, and the response was great. I am considering making a few to sell. Its polished aluminum 8"h x 15"w. It threads onto the rear wiper arm shaft and secures with a countersunk set screw. Let me know if you are interested. You can e-mail me at thanks, and happy cruising.<img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>
