Title: the subject of colors. rims in particular...
Post by: shaynej on November 05, 2008, 12:05:44 AM
So I was thinking to myself earlier today. I had just gotten my replacement rim back from the powdercoater.  And it was supposed to be an exact duplicate of my OEM front rim (FLAT BLACK)   As it turns out, it's TITANIUM.   Now, to hold the rim alone it is truly stunning, very presentable on it's own!  But I have a 25th Anniversary Red White and Blue VFR.  And even the frame is flat black.  There is nothing on this bike that is grey, silver, slate, or titanium.   But now I have a front rim that is TITANIUM.  And a spare silver rear rim that is ready for color.   So the question I throw out to all y'all is this...

WHAT COLOR SHOULD I PUT ON MY BIKE?

(not that I care, I'd ride on primer grey rims as long as I could ride...)

a - stock flat black
b - dark blue (like cruzinaz)
c - white (impossible to clean and would require rotor removal (which as I just found out would also require replacing 12 rotor bolts))
d - titanium
e - who gives a rats ass
d - neon green (in tribute to Skuuter)

I think the Blue look great on a RWB

Not neon green, no... But more of a bright lime yellow. More like Skuuterviz

I really like the Blue wheels, but I voted Flat Black....I still like the matching frame and wheels...wish the R-W-B had Black Forks like the 09.......... :headbang:

I like the titanium but if you don't like them you can always send them to me free of charge. I will be glad to accept a gift of this nature. :goofy:

If you send it to Cruzinaz with a case or 2 of beer taped to it, he'll beat the hell out of the gnomes in the back room to get it done pronto. :laughing11:
