Default Difficulty finding aftermarket parts for my new (to me) Vegas 8-Ball

Hey guys.

I've tried searching the forums here, but I'm unable to find answers to some of my questions.

So, I'm having some real issues finding the actual parts that I want for my 2011 Vegas 8-Ball.

One of the things I want to do immediately is get rid of the backwards fuel cap, and put an Arlen Ness Beveled Gas Cap on it...however, I can only find Chrome or Contrasting Black with Chrome accents. I don't want those. Examples:

Do Not Want

Do Not Want

Does anyone know a source for the all blacked out cap? Really, anything except the pop-up Kewl Metal cap would be fine, probably. I just want to lose the backwards OEM cap.

Moving on, I'm trying to find some basic flat black Cam/Derby/Engine covers. I don't want a skull, or flames, or FDNY on it, I just want to find some flat black covers that I can use to clean up the look. I'm not crazy into graphics or any of that, I love the look of a simple, clean, uniform bike.

In addition to these covers, I'm also looking for black wedge covers that also come in black but WITHOUT the dimples. I might put the 106 black badges on them, but I want to be able to keep them flat black if I want to. I know the wedges all come with the keyhole precut into them, so I'll need at least a flat black wedge badge on the right side, but even when I eventually get keyless ignition put on it, I want to be able to easily cover the left side, too. I'm actually also considering putting Judge covers on here instead of keeping the traditional wedge look.

This is all I'm having trouble with finding right now.

The companies I have looked at so far are:

conquestcustoms.com victoryonly.com buywitchdoctors.com noemtz.com victormotorcycles.com jpcycles.com

Maybe others.

And thanks everyone if you get the chance to read this and think about it. I appreciate all of the information I can gather.

Dunno about yr gas cap but black paint comes in spraycans and following directions some brilliant results can be achieved, ... On the cheap too!
And the satisfaction of doing it yourself.
