                    ^^ black chrome would look badass...  but i am going chrome-less on the bike.

                    still unsure what to do about color.  wheels, frame and fenders will be black

                    can do whatever with the tank, still wanna sticker bomb one, lol

                          Bought some clip on handle bars off flea bay... hoping they aren't the worst thing in the world... why flea bay?  they have clamps on the bars too, so I can experiment with bar length and bends ect.
