It has the perfect amount of yellow...i wouldn't add any to the wheels. Curious about the transparent over your wheels? I have a set of spank subrosa30 on hopes that i would love to knock the white down a little

Search for "transparent adhesive vinyl", "headlight tint" or "headlight tinting" on eBay (without quote marks). I got the yellow from eBay.com (seller name paperstreetplastics) and the grey from eBay.co.uk (seller name vtcust0ms).

The cranks are the yellow vinyl - it coloured the black parts a little too so I cut around the letters with a scalpel blade then put a clear crank skin over the top. For the wheels I cut curved shapes from the vinyl sheet first then applied them with slightly soapy water then squeegeed it out. Worked out pretty nicely!

Spending this much time and effort building up a nice bike it's nice to do these finishing touches.

That's a lot of love put into that machine. Nice work. I agree that it is a perfect amount of yellow...very tasteful.

All I am missing to do the service is a new crush washer and the 30wt oil for the lowers now... easy enough procedure, it just takes some patients to complete it. WTH, sausages are in the freezer getting ready for a trip to the Dakotas... I think tomorrow they could be on there way, not a ton but the Italian sausages are pretty freaking great. I am starting on developing a variation on Italian Sausage and trying a few new things so feedback would be excellent. If you like them, I will take that recipe to my new company and see what they think. They are spicier than I normally create so... Settling on trying to see if Five Tens fit, going with the free riders. Sent Five Ten an email saying to get their shit together and make a 15... yeesh.

Move your Reverb lever to the left side now that you've got space over there.

Nice looking ride and some solid upgrades. Why did you go from 10 to 9 in the back?
