Don't have any extra chrome covers.I pulled my covers off.They were badly oxidized.With wet sand paper and several hours of quality time I hand sanded with 400 grit,then 1000 grit and then 2000 grit.Finished with Mothers Aluminum polish.They look like mirrors.It took some of the time I had spare but was well worth it.I guess it's all about how much your time and effort are worth compared to out of pocket expense.

If you can't find any to your liking on E-Bay,I'll look in my box-o-stuf and see what's left.What pieces do you need?The parts I have are from 2 junked bikes I bought cheap for parts.Your welcome to whatever you need.

I have A DECENT SET WITH BOLTS..$40 PLUS SHIPPING they will need to be polished if you want chrome look..new ones weren't chromed..just polished AL..there is a guy who does amazing polishing..sunbob I think..his look like chrome when he's done with them. I'll lookfor he post..and pics of his work..he sells on eBay sometimes too.
