Rear brake lever

Well when I dropped my bike while back, the rear brake pedal got bent. So today I spoke to a neighbor of mine who does custom choppers and asked him is there any salvage bike yards around b/c I wanted a new lever. He says "You don't need a new one, take the lever off, put it on the vise and bend it back into shape." Well I took his advice and wah-lah I split it into two. FML haha. Well the whole purpose of this thread is. Can I buy a aftermarket rear brake lever, instead of another stock one?

Haven't seen one. There are after market shift levers but I don't recall running across a rear brake lever. Must have been some hit to break that.
