Have you tried shining a light inside to see if it is translucent?

Gear shift knob?

Luke.
That's what thought it was originally,maybe from a pontiac or something.
I decided on investing in 3 gear inter rear wheel,and thought of a indian shift knob,and this came my way...

I like the top bar.

Only issue I see is changing the plug, looks like you have to remove the tank to get the plug out or is it me.

And I thought the side car is used to get you down the hills at a rapid rate.

It looks like it was a handle for a cane. And that top bar with the spark plug cut out is very cool.
And we have a winner!!!1 Well that's what I figured it was in the end,i also said the top of a perfume bottle...but the thread looks tight...I would say it is a rare item...

So sorry to hear that. Dedicating this bike to her is a great idea.

Very sorry for your loss Miss Funk. My grandmother passed away at 94 during BO7 and I dedicated Flexy to her. I am sure she is looking down on you and your build now and wishing she could take a ride in your side car. May God Bless your grandmother, you and your family.
