Default Opinions Please!

Hi guys,

I have found this item for a good price off a used bike:

http://shop.arlenness.com/p-6593-10-...ley-black.aspx

I am keeping my spokes wheels so I am not getting the matching alloys in the photos.

I have these matching grips, pegs and derby covers about to go on so it matches the theme of the Ness Slot Track.
http://shop.arlenness.com/p-7337-slo...ver-black.aspx

Do you think it will look good or a bit to over the top on the Highball?

I don't think anything is over the top if you like it. Hell they are putting 24" wheels on them lol. I think it will look good.

I know what you are saying. I do like the look of it and it is going for a good price. It is still going to cost me a fair bit by the time I get it to me. I am just not sure if it will make my bike look over done or if it will look too fussy against the spoke wheel and the white wall.

Do you think I need to have alloys for the look to work on a Highball?

It does tie in well with my Ness Slot Track derby cover though. I wouldn't buy it for $599 from Ness as it would be too much of an outlay if I didn't like it. I would rather a set of Torque Tubes or an S&S intake or something for that money.

At half that it has me thinking though...

Big T , even for that good deal , 1/2 price , If it were me I may put that kind of money towards something you may want or need more . The stock pulley to me isn't an eye sore at all . If you were going with a complete theme , that would be another story .

I suppose I'd have to see the bike it was going to go on. But, if you like it, then that's all that matters.

I think it would look good as long as you like it. I think it would look better (to me) if the silver accents were red.

$20,000 and 3000 miles DO NOT make you a biker

I don't think its going to change the look of the bike. It might even look out of place with know other like parts around it.
Am sorry I don't understand why guys ask others on what they think. Its your bike you have to look at it every day and ride it Do as you like not what others like. Did that guy ask when he went to red rims or side mount lic do what you want

VJ , bantering back and forth , and asking one another advice / point of view , is what drives this forum , and sparks good conversation . You know that !
