Bikes with left side kick start

I have been considering a trials bike. I have a bum right knee that does not like to kick start the bike...so I get off and kick with my left leg. Somewhat of a distraction. Who makes a bike with the left side kick?

You may get used to kicking right side with your left leg. I know a few people with left kickers who stand to the side and kick with their right.
