Looking for an Engine Cover

Does anyone have an engine cover that will fit a Thruxton that is just laying around?

Brand new bike and I put it down! Ill explain by saying gravel and pot hole together while turning does not make a great combination.

Held most of the bike up so nothing but bottom of stock exhaust and right side engine cover were scratched.

Or if you know a place that sells them for a decent price please let me know.

Bummer! How bad is it? do you have black cases? sometimes you can buff the scratches out with some time and patience.

Yep you can get rid of scratches easily on these engine cases

Yea it bruised my ego but I lesson learned.

I have some pretty good indentions in it. I will take a pic and post to see if they can be buffed out. I think they are too deep but we shall see. Also, wont that take it down to the aluminum finish? I would like to keep the same look.

I should have clarified and said indentions. But maybe they are scratches.

I'm also interested in this (though I won't snake any deal you find). I just went down on my Scrambler and banged up my casing. Was thinking about replacing it with matte black ones instead, but not sure it would jive well with the rest of the engine still being metallic.
