Assuming a K5 450, and that you are looking for "vintage looks", try an undrilled "dirt-bike" type.....Chaperral Motorsports or a similar dealer should have them.......

These were his prices and info as of the last email i had from him (this year) and this is for custom made to your dimensions! His work is of a very high standard.

Price:
$92 domestic, $103USD Canuck, &105USD International. That includes shipping. No PayPal or plastic but personal checks OK. Your personal integrity has GOTTA be worth more than $100! Non domestic payments easiest handled via postal M/O.

Specify make/model/yadayada, &c. Include LEGIBLE snail mail addy - D'oh.
Make any checks payable to: R.C.L. & send everything to:

Got a super quick reply, looks pretty good, let you all know what I find out once I send him the measurements..


"Sorry, never made one for that bike, tho I've been known to do one-offs. The price for those depends on the style of fork seals. The cost would be in the $150 range - w/ $50 down. I've been stuck 2 often.
