Wheel opinions...

Thinking about getting my rims powder coated...color options right now white, gold or just keep black.
Gas cap is gold, chain is gold and the banjo fittings are gold(not in the pic)

I miss my 03'...one of the best bikes I've ever had. I'd say go white with red or blue or black pinstripe. Not too much a fan of gold.

I am not a big fan of gold either. I would offset the white with a blue or red like AHB537 said. But, since you already have so much gold on the bike, it's kinda late. I would go with white wheels or keep them black.

That would work. Gold is all too common on the R1.

I wanted to do red but my gas cap decided to change colors on me and I liked the gold. The rim stripe was in the plans but wasn't really sure.
