Thanks for the compliment. I feel the same way about most of the bikes here. I took these photos last week just before I started the winter tear down. Here we go again!

Did you get a quote from www.custom-chrome.com ? They're just down the road from you in Cambridge. If its any where close, could save some big coin in shipping!

$799 is for the set. 2 people advised me not to go to Cambridge. Bikes 2 NV have a good reputation. Their product seems durable and Al rides a Streak.

By the time it's all said and done you'll be into it for about a grand. Not bad. Now you've got me thinking.

I shipped my rims off to Bikes 2 NV on Thursday. 38lb box cost about $50 to send UPS across the border to Ohio.

My brother is a CBP officer at that border and does cargo almost exclusively. I'll ask him to put a rush on clearing your package!

Your brother must have fast tracked them (lol). They went out for delivery on Monday. Too bad Bikes 2 NV is closed Monday. I'm not in a hurry. Weather will be crap here for the next 4 months anyways :( I did get my tank and fenders back from the painter today. Sweeeeeet!!!!!!

After talking with Al at Bikes 2 NV today, I opted for the trade in. So my new chromed rims shipped out today! Hopefuly I'll have them next week. If anyone's in the Cleveland area, Bikes 2 NV is at the motorcycle show there this weekend. Go check them out. Great people to deal with.
