2015 State of the LT Chrome

After 10 years, the chrome 'beltline' and windshield covers are shot. My googling thusfar has shown the existance of one, right side, windshield cover...I'm looking at what I want for christmas and that's as good an excuse as any to replace these parts...but the Beemerboneyard is sold out, and I'm not exactly sure what the official designation is for the chrome parts that seperate the top and bottom panels covering the motor.

Where does the modern, discerning, LT owner go to get these four pieces these days? CAN a modern, discerning LT owner sill but them, or am I left with an ugly windshild and epoxying the peeling plastic chrome of the parts I still have?

If those pieces aren't broke. The PO of my LT painted the beltline trim flat black. It looks good. He did it in place too.

Thanks Jzeiler, I'll reach out to them!

Jame216 the windshield trim has disintegrated, as is the left rocker panel, no paint will fix that!

Re: 2015 State of the LT Chrome

In my case, the plastic underneath was broken, which led to the chrome delaminating.

The left ebay rocker panel was perfect, the right had a stress crack where you can't see it, but that piece on my bike is in good shape, so between the four parts, I have a complete set.

Gaugefix PM sent.
