Smile 85 vt700 side covers

I am looking for the left and right side covers for my bike, but all the ones I find on eBay are expensive. Is there a different place that I may be able to get them for cheaper?

They are getting harder to find now days. Maybe look up motorcycle salvage/wrecking yards in your area and see if they have any.

I was browsing eBay the other day and saw some side covers for the 700/750 for that era. You might try there I always just type the year make and size of my bike and it comes up with a large array of parts on eBay.

I've been checking eBay for a year trying to get side covers for my 84 vt700 at a reasonable price. But I still paid about $40 for each one. They come up every once in while on ebay for a reasonable price. I've been thinking about making some replica side covers for the vt700 but I don't know if enough people would want them or how much it would cost.
