Original “balance weight” for Isetta, Trojan etc for sale!

Saturday, October 2nd, 2010

From an eBay listing in the UK, the seller’s description:
Here for sale is an original gold painted BALANCE WEIGHT for a 1950s TROJAN and BMW Isetta Bubble Car. These were apparently used under the passenger seat when there was only one occupant in order to stabilise the car round corners. Marvellous and probably incredibly rare. Weighs about 15 kgs.

While it is heavy it is not what this lump of metal was used for. Can you guess what it was originally used for?
Hint: it *COULD* have been used in an Isetta or Trojan!
