Replacement spring for Brown side-stand?

Does anyone know a source for a replacement spring for a Brown side stand?

Sure, I can go to a local hardware store, but what other options exist?

The only think I find on google is this place that I have never heard of selling stainless versions.... the don't list an address nor phone so I am a bit leary.

No worries with Phast by Phillips. Brad Phillips in Greer, SC. Makes the most accurate /6 style fork brace I have ever used.

It certainly doesn't look like someone trying to trick you. And besides, he's riding an Airhead Cafe Bikes so that should count for something.

No luck at the local hardware store, and somehow it seems I may have lost my original (rusty) spring

Anyone have specs on the stock spring perhaps?
