All of the lower covers are total unicorns.
The upper covers were on clearance forever.
You could probably with enough time sand down the aluminum and get it polished up to shine like chrome. Some Honda guys do that with the forks and the rims. Takes forever to get the rough surface smooth but it looks great in the end result.
It's been quite some time ago, but when I got fed up with the chintzy plastic fork guards on my 10' XC, I found out that you could use the polished stainless steel ones from one of the steel framed bikes. Can't recall which one, but they bolted right up to where the fender attached to the forks. Don't know if this helps, just thought I'd throw it out there in case...
Thank you for that information. My oem plastic forks guards are still fully intact. I do have a set of chrome aftermarket ones I'll use when/if the oem ones break. What I'm after are the chrome lower fork covers that used to be available from Kuryakyn. I had a nos set in my hands once and foolishly didn't buy them. This was right after Polaris announced they murdered Victory.
It looks like a chore to remove the lower fork ends to be sent out for chrome plating. Although I'd like to have the wheels chromed as well.
