For something that really wasn't that expensive...using some wheels and tires they already had, re-purposing the cast off stock exhaust, and playing with the stock forks and suspension.
Repainting the whole thing was probably the most work...
My car is black and let me tell you, I've never had anything so hard to keep clean. I thought white was supposed to be way easier...
See mario's STriple color post. Yeah I'm torn about keeping my Speedmaster. After all the customization. The blood sweat and tears. I would hate to just get rid of it. Last season alone I spent, like, a grand on mods and hours upon hours of wrenching. But I'd pay off the Street so much faster with an extra 4-5 grand to start with... And I have a feeling that once I get a taste of performance like that, I wouldn't ride the cruiser too often anyways.
The black is sexy as hell. But the MFG pics of the gray don't do it justice...
That does look pretty good.
For me it depends what you're going to do to it.
If you're going to keep it mostly stock, the gray looks more sophisticated/mature. I like it.
If you're going to put an exhaust on it, or any other sort of conspicuous modifications, I think that'd ruin what the gray has going for it, and be better served on the black.
All IMO, of course.
I love white on cars/bikes, just not in this case.
I'd certainly take any of the three The bugeyes do look better with the windscreen.
