Where can I get a silver, matt finish trekking bar?

I want to change my Sirrus's flat bar for a trekking bar. The stem, seat post, and spacers are matt finish silver. I found Profile bar ends that have the same texture and colour, but I can't find any trekking handlebars for sale that have a similar finish. The bar at Velo Orange is shiny silver, and the one at Nashbar is black. REI has the handlebar I need, but its on the Novara Safari - and the shop guys at REI tried to see if they could order it separately for me but couldn't find the part listed in their catalogue.

FYI - you can see the Sirrus colours here:

Anyone here have suggestions on where I can find a matt finished, silver trekking handlebar?

Buy some Nashbar black ones and bead blast them=silver matte finish.I haven't seen any matte finished ones,black or silver.

If yours are matte finished,chances are they are anodized silver.

You're right, I mean silver anodized finish.

BBB has both finishes on their trekking bars.. UK based SJS one source..

ask a Bike shop if they have an account with Bike Mine, a distribution company out of Oklahoma City

they have the US distribution deal with BBB.. I got some BBB stuff thru R&E in Seattle.
