Brass Head Bolt Covers?

Hi All,

I fancy some brass head bolt covers, does anyone know whether the ones they make for Harley's would fit the Bobber, and has anyone seen them for sale in the UK?

Harley stuff is almost certainly still imperial, not metric.

Yeah, I know it's a long shot but as they're held on by grub screws they don't need to be super tight and I'm sure I remember someone on here who had brass header bolts but I can't find the thread although it might be Jefro? If I could find them for sale in the UK I might take a chance and return them if they didn't fit but if I have to order from the States that's too much hassle! So I wondered if any of you guys knew?

I've been toying with the idea of brass electroplating my own bolts.

I've spent my fortune on wine, women, and motorcycles. The rest I wasted on everything else.

All HD head bolt trim is grub screws if that helps.

Thanks Jefros I knew someone had done it.

The brass covers I've seen on Ebay do look a little small and with them costing £50+ (with postage and import duties from the States) I wanted to make sure they fitted before I ordered them.

BTW your Bobber looks awesome, although that seat does look precarious!!!
