I'm not sure what these things are even called, but while attempting to remove the "Vulcan 750" stickers from those plastic side covers, I might have accidentally melted one of them. Not too bad, just a little bit. Clearly a torch and a few lagers don't mix.

Anyhow, while doing this I was thinking - it would be cool if I could replace my melted plastic covers with something cooler. Maybe chrome or stainless. Does anyone sell such a part? I couldn't find anything in the verses on this, or in search.

There was a couple of years they were stock Chrome. They are on Ebay every now and then, Keep your eyes open.

Stock Chrome! Sounds like a deal. Do you recall what year they were chrome?

My 2003 has chrome, but for some reason my 1995 doesn't ;)

They aren't metal chrome, they're plastic chrome. Still available through places like Ron Ayers but pricey. Best bet is to find some on ebay from a parted out bike. (though they can still be pricey even there!)

My 95 has plastic chrome side covers. You can sort of see them in this pic:

Kind of like the look of artifical Chrome side covers. Will have to check out
Ron Ayers to see how steeply they are priced. Eventually I will be buying
a second vn750 for spare parts, but am waiting for prices to fall. Have seen several up for sale already this spring, but pricey.
Thanks for the pic!
