Default How to extend the side stand?

Can anyone help with ideas how to extend the standard sidestand please?
Perhaps someone's already done it?

I need to increase the length of the sidestand by about 4cm. But I don't want to weld anything on. I'm hoping to use fabrication methods.

Its a possibility or perhaps a piece of U shaped flat metal bolted to the foot of the side stand.

What about having a trawl about a local breakers, see if you can find a bit longer one that'll fit?

Photies....

The bike is jacked up and the extra height is needed due to me jacking up the rear end which gives more under-seat clearance and more ground clearance.
Gives the bike a slightly more aggressive stance and sharpens up the steering.

Could try that, but I don't know any local bike breakers.
I'm not sure they would be prepared to help out on summat this "minor" I suppose.
Time is money and all that.

What I am thinking is to buy a mild steel rectangular section off-cut, of size 50x25mm. Then cut it on the angle to match the line of the stand and bolt it to the existing foot, using a couple of countersunk bolts and with aircraft nuts inside the box section. Paint it black.

Ah I forget we're quite spoilt. Our local breakers (Roosters) strips and catalogues (in his head I think) all the expensive stuff and stores that away safely, then owt else gets parked up outside. There must be an acre of scrap bikes just parked outside in his compound so you can just wander round and find stuff for yourself.
