Default Cheap cosmetic upgrades

I have been searching around and can't find anything about little cheap stuff that we can do to our bikes to look better. Granted there are tons of aftermarket stuff we can buy but some of us can't afford it. If you have any ideas/pics of cheap cosmetic changes, post them and let us broke people see them.

Thanks, Nathan

Cheap is different to different people.

A lot of people base price that off of the quality of the product. Others base it off of their income.

A good example is Cycleops. Some say his prices are high until they get his products and they see the time put in and the quality of and finish of the product.

I know some people that think the Barracuda Custom wedge replacements are expensive at $39.00.

There are a lot of vendors out there and they have products that range from $25 to thousands of dollars.

Have some fun and shop around.

Diamond, i'm sorry. I meant more like cheap or free stuff like removing the tank badges, cheese wedges...etc. Just little stuff we can change and maybe clean up the look of our bike a little. I finally removed my badges and made a little mount for rear led lights.

I just thought maybe other people had tried other stuff and I was curious what other ideas there may be.

Thanks Diamond, i'd love to build mine like you did but just not in the cards. I am known for being a budget builder on everything I do, so i'm anxious to see what other people have come up with.

Thank you. It wasn't an overnight transformation. Porti is 6 years in the making.

I'm still not finished! LOL
