Description: Now that I have the larger 4.00 x 19" tires, I was trying to decide whether to paint the rims black or leave them chrome. This is what it would look like.

April 27, 2010, 10:08:51 pmI'd stick to the chrome rims, personally. It's a sharp-looking bike, though, to be sure. The front mudguard - which I assume to be a 350 front mudguard mounted on 500 stays, to get it off those Big Manly Tires - looks cool. It's reminiscent of the mudguard on the J and J2.
September 29, 2009, 10:26:36 pmHey Chris, the tires are not from CMW. They handle great, ride very smooth. My stock front tire was too sensitive to the road for my taste. The roads aren't great in NC (getting better), but the stock front tire would catch every uneven groove, crack and patch which was a little spooky. Plus, I like the look of the bigger tires.

Really, your bike is looking cooler every time you post a picture of it here on the site. Those tires looks fantastic and I'm totally inspired to throw them up on my military now. That new ACE filter fits perfectly, good call. Looks like I've just put some new items on my 'to buy' list. Way to go, my vote: go black on the rims.
