    I'm kinda partial to the white, but I can't wait to see what you do.
    BTW, paint looks AWESOME.

    Ended up with gold striping, looks sharp.

    Started workin on the handlebars. i used old bullet shells for the ends caps. i polished them then cleared them. perfect fit. as for the bars, i wrapped them in black hockey stick grip tape. looks killer!! reminds me of header heat wrap on old hot rods. enjoy.

    exactly what I would have said...it brings out the flake in the paint! It would be awesome to see the bike in person, great looking bike dude.

    My 2 Cents Worth O' Opinion: Go with the guard, the shape of the guard nicely echos the sweep of the bars. Plus it shows off the killer paint combo even more.
