I've had two bikes stolen with them, if you find one it's a fair chance it's from mine.

What did the good folks at Nichols say when you contacted them? Were they willing to share the CAD solid model with you - perhaps for a small royalty for their trouble? Then a trivial matter to get them made (albeit, not cheaply).

It's a desirable piece - and worth having on any 990. Alternatively, and probably less expensively, fork extension caps could be made ... Same result.

If there was real demand for say qty. 10 = people willing to "group buy"; payment up front, I would be willing to see if they would share the CAD, and I could get them made. Again, they won't be cheap, but probably <$500. I could reverse engineer from mine, and create the model, but that would add some real cost.
