Chrome Seat "bow" (a/k/a/ grab rail)

I really want a chrome seat grab rail (called a "bow" in the BMW parts catalog) for my PROJECT-S, like the one that came on the R90S . Chrome will offset the black paint perfectly, IMHO.

I've been looking,with little luck, for a place here in So Cal to chrome my black RT seat grab rail. It seems that chroming anything in CA is just cost prohibitive these days thanks to the ARB. One shop quited my $100, ya, no, I don't think so .

So I thought I'd look it up in the BMW parts fiche just for fun, 52 53 1 232 456 BOW - CHROM. What do ya know, the chrome seat "bow" is just $51 new from BMW. I've got one on order from Irv Sievers BMW.
