Default Replacement ball valve handles?

I have a 2" stainless sanitary ball valve with a broken/missing handle. Does anyone know where to get a replacement? I have googled to no avail.

Thanks.

You can probably make one fairly easily if your handy.

a 2 inch brass ball valve (which is the only size w/ a handle that will fit) costs like $45. there's got to be somebody that sells just the handle...
