One way to do this is via ghost variables that appear in the legend
but not on the graph.

sysuse auto, clear
gen id = _n
gen ghost1 = 2000
gen ghost2 = 2000
graph twoway rspike weight price id if !foreign, lwidth(0.015) ///
 || ///
rspike weight price id if foreign, lwidth(1.5) || ///
rspike ghost2 ghost1 id, lwidth(0.5) pstyle(p1) || ///
rspike ghost1 ghost2 id , pstyle(p2) lwidth(0.5) legend(order(3 "x" 4 "y"))
