Blue with a polished lip maybe?

I'm sorry to come off like a dick immediately, but this is all you see on here is photoshop requests. This is nothing personal. I just wonder what people used to do before photoshop.. Oh wait, they would use their imagination and picture what it would look like. Kinda like what people do when they jack off I guess..

And +1000 to you having an awesome bike.

i took no offense to it at all. i understand where you are coming from completly. i thought about doing a polished lip but i have polished on the wheels on my truck and they are a pain in a** to keep polished. thanks on the complements it still needs some other stuff done to as well.

white with blue in a spiral, so it has the "twilight zone" effect when spinning.

I hear what your sayin about keepin up on polished aluminum. I think white will be a pam in the ass too. I dunno if you wash your bike a lot or not. But keepin white clean is gonna be tough.

So after lookin at the pics again, I think you should go with Blue spokes with black outter portion of the wheel. So like, only blue on the spokes.

I'd then top it off with a matching blue solo seat cowl with some white on it. Maybe a white # plate. Put a matching one up front.

maybe some white fren tubo's too!

White on the wheels might look better but they will suck to keep clean, trust me one of my old bikes had white wheels. Also I would powdercoat whatever you decided on, it is a superior finish especially on wheels.

I'd do just a nice blue on both wheels, not a fan of two tone. I think that would look real good, simple and clean.

I wish I had an updated pic. How it looks in my pic was on day 1. It looks quite a bit different now and I'm waiting to put on an Olson Y-pipe and GYTR muffler. Once spring comes I'll get some sweet pictures!
