Hi Tommy, sorry mate but that's the going rate for a pair of chromed hose covers and fleabay is probably the only place you'll see them for sale, although I believe Mark Read on here makes them in stainless steel but not sure of the price. Plus I did hear a while back that the s/s ones aren't as springy as the chromed ones and don't retain their shape as well. You could give Baz a shout, he may have a pair.
HTH Steve.
Look, my paintwork hasn't got "Fish scales" :x they're "Dragon scales" right!!! However, after some thought, I will accept "Black Marlin" or "Swordfish", but definitely not "Haddock" or "Cod".

Had a word with Mark Read and he hasn't any in stock, but says he will make some in the near future. Keep looking on his ebay site at classic_bike_fasteners

I’ve just bought a set of the expensive eBay ones as I had no other options. They are a good job but certainly not with £27 each but hey no other options. Delivery was within a few days.

Well, there was always the option to be not so posy....... :roll:
Oh, by the way, Baz fitted some on my 750 when he did the job.
Did you not ask him? ...... :tw
He builds the f'kin things for a living ffs, so he gets stuff - and sells it - at sensible prices.
Now where's the 'duh' smiley. :?
