Chrome Saddle bag Rivets

Does anyone have a source for chrome replacement rivets? My rivets seem to rust from the inside and then fall off.

Don't know what size you need but I've used aluminum ones before with good results. The chrome ones will still rust over time, aluminum or stainless steel will not.

Thank you for the quick reply; however I am looking for the chrome decorative rivets that are on my saddle bags, passenger seat and drivers seat. These rivets are chrome round heads.

Now I understand. JP cycle sells them. Just google chrome leather rivet, lots showed up. Might give Saddleman or Ultimate a call. They make seats with them on and might sell them to you.
