I fitted some Chrome side panels, Someone asked not long ago about the quality of these sort of things, They're good ! the plastic is the same quality as the originals, all the holes and lugs are where they're supposed to be, I fitted a chrome tax disc as well and a helmet lock as mines rendered useless behind the panniers most of the time.

I have got a chrome shaft cover but I have never fitted it. The reason being that I don't like the way it secures to the shaft using jubilee clips, they will scrap the paint off the shaft when being installed.

Yeah I will get around to it at some stage, when I can be bothered. I only bought it because I got it in a job lot off of one of our members, otherwise I would not have got one.
