anyone have any pics of gold/bronze chain and sprockets on a silver 04+ ? Im planning on doing a 520 conversion before long, and most sets i come across use gold chains etc......and i cant decide if it will stand out too much. Right now i have the gold CRG levers and they look great on the bike.

(and yeah, i feel retarded asking cosmetic questions...because im by far a function > form type of person)

not sure if you want did erv2/afam setup but 199 shipped at my website. i have all 520 sprockets in stock except the 47tooth which will be coming in any day. also have erv3's, but they cost a good bit more and no real noticeable diff in performance or much of anything 10% less friction, 10% longer life/tensile strength is the difference from the erv2 to the erv3. sprockets wear out before the chain so the tensile strength isn't a big deal.

not w/ afam. they hard anodize everything and end up a very dark gray. with sprocket specialists their hard anodizing is black. any hard anodizing is going to be black or gray and i wouldn't recommend alum w/o hard anodizing. it doubles the life of the sprocket and only costs a few more dollars
