Where to get good hardware?

Where can a guy get good looking, high quality nuts & bolts for a project bike. It seems that if you want better materials or more attractive head shapes you need to buy expensive assortments, often with unspecified contents. I'm tired of going to the hardware store in an attempt to find something that will merely be acceptable, rather than what I know I want. Thanks in advance.

Most all towns have a Nut & Bolt store that sales nothing but. Check with your local hard ware store and ask them the same question. I bet the know where it is. You can also check your local Yellow book looking for NUTS & BOLTS. My local store carries stainless every thing and can get chromed if they don't already have it in stock.
