Not sure what style you are looking for but if looking for clear plastic type rather then stainless or chrome this is what the Memphis Shades look like, includes mounting hardware and cost about $75.
I was kind of impressed for the price but that is just me .. was simple to install too ...

sorry to hijack the thread but did you get your 07 repainted or is that stock color? My 09 is the same color as your 07...

Oops ... sorry for the confusion. That photo is my 08 VStar. C50 didnt come in that color in 07. I traded the c50 in this past summer for the V.

FWIW: A table model scroll saw does an excellent job of cutting out the 1/4" plexi-glass plates.

I know this is an older thread, but you can polish the edges of the plex with a torch. Quick passes over it will polish it to a glass like finish. A buddy used to make aquariums out of the plexiglass and used this method after routing out the parts.

I will give this a go. I made some lowers last year out of Lexan that turned out really nice finishing the edges with a belt sander. I will try this on a left over piece of scrap and report back.
