Default chrome kick stand?

I am interested in putting a chrome kick stand on my Aero75. Where is the best place to purchase this for the best price. I have checked a couple places I have ordered accessories from and they don't seem to have it. I'm not sure where I seen it now. I even checked ebay and unless it's listed under something else there wasn't one there either. Got any ideas??

Lora, I know that CruizerCustomizing sells them, but I think they run about 100 bucks.......I hate the black side stand on mine too, but I just can't seem to part with 100 for a side stand!!!!

There is another site on the web that sells 'covers' for sidestands, unfortunately they only make them for HD's!!!

Good luck in your search and let me know if you find something reasonably priced, I have an 04 Aero.

Di, I know what you mean! I've been wanting one for a long time but I find something else that I also wanted that costs less and get that instead! Now I'm basically back to the side stand issue again....

I'll put out my radar, maybe something fabulously priced will just magically appear. If so, I'll let ya know!

Our (former) '01 VLX Deluxe had a chromed, or at least polished, kickstand. I don't know if it was because it was a Deluxe, or if all the late-model VLX's have a polished stand. My 1100 stand is unpolished silver.

If the length and attach point matches, maybe an easy swap.

Just take your existing stand off the bike and have it chromed at a local chrome shop.

Should be able to get it chromed for under $50 or so.

That's funny. I had both wheels off mine and it didn't fall over.

I've always heard that the Shadows were well balanced machines.

Lora,
Another option; You can always go with a sidestand chrome cover:

These "Universal Kickstand Covers" are in the $90 range and they have several styles to choose from, you might be able to find something less expensive too!
