I am 99% decided on going with the black marchi's and black sato rear sets, but I decided to photoshop them to gold to see what it would look like. I think it also looks great, just wanted to get some opinions from you guys. What do you think looks better?

I'd go black man and black levers too, it'll make to Fiat Kit stand out more, the gold wheels takes some attention away imo, looks sexy either way though!

Love the gold on 95% of the bikes better but on yours i think the black would keep the attention on the bike and not on the wheels.

yaya:stpd:

I'd say the black looks Great....

But the Gold gives it more that Replica Finish....

Go gold wheels, Black Rearsets Like stated above....

Or you can always Go Ghetto, and give it the White Wheels.....
(Can someone chop this for me to see ?)

Personally I like the black, but I usually go for a "stealth" look.

So... I made a simple assumption and did a simple test.

Assumption - If you have Fiat bodywork and graphics you're looking to draw attention to the bike, want it to draw peoples eyes to it.

Simple test - brought up the pic of both bikes, looked away from the computer for a few moments and looked back. See which look drew my attention quicker, where my eyes went...

Right to the gold.
