Folding keys are available, but pricey ($12). More important, they are hard to cut correctly. (I think it's difficult to fit the blank in the machine). Sometimes, they don't work correctly, or don't work at all without a lot of jiggling.

I suggest that in addition to a folding blank, you get a couple of regular blanks, and have your locksmith work with those first.

do you mean the steering lock?
u can buy new lock kits on line for a good deal then you can change the starter key and the fuel tank lock in a short time then drill the steering lock. then you can just carry a U lock to lock the front wheel when you park up
