Big Blue Pearl - Post Your Mods (Photos)

Hello Big Blue Pearl shark owners. Our bikes come stock with some chrome bits, some black bits, and some painted bits. What I'm wondering is how the bikes look once some additional BLACK, CHROME, or CONTRAST bits are added. The BBP seems to go good with just about anything, but it would help me form a direction for my mods if I could see some prime examples. Please post pics of your Big Blue Pearl sharks and note what changes you've made.
I'm learning toward chrome-out the forks and engine and black-out the bars and console, but then again... Contrast cut looks bad-a$$. I'm paralyzed with indecision. Can you HELP a brother, please?

Well, gr8bigdude, I'm currently working on some further mods, but I won't be able to show you them for another couple of weeks or so.

In the meantime, here's a link to some pics I posted here this past summer. What you see here is:

Black Heritage bars w/Avon grips; Black HD mirrors; Black clutch/brake levers; Clearview dark smoke windshield; chrome fork legs (Willy Shiny); Arlen Ness chrome cowbells; chrome HD Roulette wheels (in stock sizes); Fuel Moto pipes w/their touring mufflers; HD Tallboy seat (MCC modded); some other unseen (but significant ) suspension and stereo mods. I'm sure there was some other stuff I'm forgetting: http://www.flickr.com/photos/forbes_...24029162/show/

Going for the contrast look myself. This is what I have done so far. Not going overboard with it though. Plan on contrast cut mirrors and shift linkage is about it.

Black Rineharts with chrome tips.
