Seemed like atleast 6 days outta the week there were ones on eBay.
But now all I see there are ones for the 800 & up ?

They do show up on eBay a lot, although often painted with odd things. But Hyper's right - there don't seem to be any right now. Keep your eyes posted, however, 'cause for the money, that's your best bet.

Come to think of it, Boulder Bikeworks had side covers for sale off a 95 - you have to read the description, and not look at the pic. Let me see if they're still for sale and I'll post the link.

I found four on eBay - here's one item number [160075898015]. Hyper may be able to directly set up the links for ya. All four are oddly painted, so you'd have to do some work to get them "chromed" again. But for the money, it might be worth it.

I didn't see the Boulder Bikeworks ones - they had not been sullied, but were a lot more expensive than these.

160075898015 are not chromed underneath.. what is showing as the marks are the residue from the emblem that was on the cover. (The back side shows the paint.
Chrome side covers are plastic chrome. To have plastic chromed is a lot more expensive and would probably cost more than buying NOS (New Old Stock)
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1993-...spagenameZWD1V looks to be a chrome one though but is only the right one.
