Concrete Step Moulding

Hello I am working on redoing a few rows of steps and one thing I've noticed is that the steps around the neighborhood has a certain profile look. I really want to make these steps consistent to the neighboor's. The profile consists of a round-bullnose shape-roughly 2" in diameter, below this shape is a inner triangler..

Well here is a photo the type of step design throughout the neighborhood.

There is a lowes/home depot near by as well...
Here is a photo -

Approx profile!
Does anyone know where I can buy form mouldings for such a design from? and it's cost..

Any help would be greatly appropriated.

Those are precast concrete steps. Reading Precast and Bethlehem Precast make them. Never thought of making them myself. They're dirt cheap to buy.

Concrete Step Moulding

Well, someone told me they sold forms like this at a local store like home depot/lowes etc.. The idea was to put a wood-profile in that matches this design!

The form would be easy enough to make, but I'm with the Aggie. Why in the world would you bother? Those steps are pretty standard stuff.
