Impossible Model in Sheet Metal?

I've been searching for a SolidWorks model of rolled sheet metal garage door handle and can't find anything other than photos..  I've come close enough for what I'm doing but forget about flattening this thing out and the model isn't happy - but I'm using what I've got, so I don't need it fixed - just thought I'd throw it out as a challenge and see if I could learn something in the process, and see if any of the sheet metal gurus could actually build this beast.

 

I've attached my model - just for dimension sakes - but the rolled handle to the flat transition is what I think is impossible.  I've also attached a jpg image of the actual handle so you can see what it actually looks like.

 

Thanks for looking!
