...A little new at Photoshop. Looking at getting them done within the month.
Not my taste.
Not my taste either. Seems like a case of 'gilding the lilly' to me, but to each their own. If this look pleases YOU, that's all that really matters.
Definition of 'Gilding the lilly':
1. To adorn unnecessarily something already beautiful.
2. To make superfluous additions to what is already complete.
Isn't that retro back to the 1990 VFR? Didn't it have gold rims and a red paint job? To be different, I don't think it looks bad at all.
... or was it 1991 that had the light gold rims and red paint?
Let's Try Something a Little Different....
This is the 2009 Version of the VFR that Spain Gets. It comes with Gold/Bronze Painted Rims. I just swapped on these Anodized Ones for a comparision. I think it looks sportier with the Black Treatment Honestly. But that might just be me?
saw them on another bike
I think it looks gangsta YO!
I remember getting a lot of similar responses when I was telling people about painting my BMW wheels gold. I say if you can visualize it in your head then go for it. 1) It's only important what you think 2) It usually looks a lot better than what nay-sayers think
Ironically all the people that told me my car would look ghetto loved my gold wheels!
/off soapbox :tongue:
I like it. That is all.
I don't like the bright gold, but the duller look the ducati has is pretty nice I think. But I always loved the 916 with the gold wheels so it might be nostalgia on my part. I considered doing it on my 98 but I keep waffling. I have a source for powedercoating pretty cheap, too.
