I'm looking for chrome fork covers for my '87 aspencade. Does anyone have any idea where to look?

Thank you for the kind welcome! What I'm looking for is best described this way. I bought this bike with these covers installed. They look like they were part of a fork brace add on, going from the fork brace to the front axle, made of plastic.:(Some of the plastic has broken around the mounting points. I'd really like new ones, but even my mechanic has only seen them on one other bike, and he only works on Wings! Thanks, Chris

Sounds more like a set of aftermarket rotor covers or maybe someone adapted 1500 rotor covers to the 1200, it's been done before.

They aren't rotor covers, but actual chrome plated(?) plastic covers that cover each fork from the bottom below the axle to the fork brace just above the fender. I do have the rotor covers as well. Thanks, Chris

They call them fork chaps for the 1200. I saw some yesterday but can't remember which website

Thank you for putting a name to this part. It may be easier to find replacements now. If at any point you remember the site, I'd really appreciate a shout. Thanks again, Chris
