Source for seat restoration parts/hardware?

I know this stuff has to be for sale out there, but I haven't had any luck finding it. I'm specifically looking for the plastic strip that goes around the bottom edge of the seat pan that the cover pulls over to keep the sharp metal edge from cutting the cover. Some guys will use automotive door edge protector, but I think there's probably a better solution.
I'm also looking for the chrome rivets that Honda used along the bottom of their seats in the early-mid '70s on some models. I don't need them to be show-correct, I just want something that's somewhat sturdy and looks right.

If anyone's interested, I found a source for good-quality chrome buttons. Sirius Consolidated Inc out of Canada sells them. www.siriusconinc.com

They sell a lot of other hard to find parts for old Japanese bikes, too. Good company to work with.
