Are you calling chrome shops? You need to find a motorcycle shop that is willing to do the disassembly, work around your bike parts taking up shop space for a few weeks, then do the reassembly.

Look up Ride Time in the sponsors.

They are not a regular shop. That's more the kind of thing they specialize in.
