To Much...Did I Go To Far?

It's easy enough to paint them back to black, what say ye? I'm undecided if I like it or not.

Step away from the paint can and no one gets hurt. Lol.

Do you like it? It's a bit much for me. But I don't have to ride it. Or next to it. Jk....

Whatever you like bud. It's your ride.

I'm an old chrome whore myself.

I'm totally down with and am one of the biggest advocates of "to each his own", you can see I'm not much of a chrome guy on this bike. From the start of my red powdercoating, I thought those would look cool painted red. But I think the bottom of that part just doesn't flow well with the bike and it sticks out painted red. Not sure yet, jury's still out on this one.

Now that was some funny shit!!! I'm a chrome guy but my last bike was blacked out except for the exhaust. I've actually been thinking about putting a black mag wheel up front.

As you know and have stated "each to his own" so really it only matters if you like it.

For me I think it attracts the eye to those parts and makes one focus on them. They are not parts that I want to make the focus of the bike.

I could see if you left them predominately black and matched the red pin stripe that is on the rest of the bike. It would dress them up but not make them stand out and over power the other parts.

I also thought it was very well written.

This has a lot of merit.

I like the pushrod covers & footboard pans. I think the horn & the deflectors are a bit much but may look better with red side panels. Personally I typically prefer a single color bike.
