Yuk.

Sorry for my blunt honesty. I like the rest of the bike just fine.

I think a medium charcoal with clearcoat would look real good with that black bike.

New wheels

Yeah, IMO the gold looks much better than the off yellow color currently on the bike, but in the end it's your bike do what you like.

well right now i am thinking about a gloss black paint with flat black, wing decals. the wheels will be gloss in the center with flat on the lips. carbon front fender and hugger to match the carbon tank guard, triple cover, and guage cover. we will see.

the yellow is actually the exact same yellow that the "racing" decal is under the "RVT" on a stock bike. my dad had them powder coated to match. it looked really good on his bike.
