    I like the white walls on black rims myself. Also the tank plate looks good.

    My only issue with the black on black is the fork blends in now.

    Chrome wheels look better in my opinion. I agree with yoothgeye, too much blending

    It's not my build, but in my opinion you had it right when you had the black rims, white walls and tank insert (and the dana).
    You're a graphic designer, put some cool graphic circles or graphic header pipes in a tank insert rather than worry about holes.
    Just my 2 cents.

    Ha Ha...y'all are funny.

    I'm going to wait until my Porkchop crank set arrives to see how it looks.

    That Dana may look cool, but I wouldn't ride the bike with it on there. In my opinion it made for a lousy ride and comfort plays a big role in what I build these days.

    Voting may be closed but if it isn't I'll side with the black on black.

    And the Dana does look very nice but I understand actually wanting to ride the bike. Crazy idea I know.

    Actually, a series of these from big to little would look slick in the tank insert.
