It's too bad the gold wheels are so bright. If they were closer to the stock wheels and frame color I'd go with those. I just put the stock black brembo wheels back on my '93 900SS before delivering it to the guy who bought it, and the bike looks good with black wheels. I'd go with the black.

How much is the set of those OZ's?

The gold OZ replicates the old clear coated gold cromate finish of the 5 spoke magnesium racing wheels of the mid nineties. They clear coated the wheels so it was easier to inspect the wheels for corrosion and cracks.

I think they all look good- it really depends on what look you are after.

I just had a pair of Diablo Rosso IIs fitted and carried both wheels to my car at once. The dude at the shop did bring them out one at a time but I didn't think that they were all that heavy. I must be strong. They are heavier than what I would like as my bike is now on a diet.

But I won't be fitting tyres on these rims again. My 93 has a few paint chips in the silver 3 spoke Brembos and under that paint is black so my first choice would be black. But I also have the old 17mm front axle and funny wheel bearing sizes so that could be a problem.

I did spend the last couple of days on Motowheels website looking at them but Australia's import rules says more tax if the value is over A$1000 and adds 25%. I am thinking of getting the front in first and seeing how I go with the more expensive rear. It would work out a lot better for me by getting them a month or so apart paying two lots of shipping.

He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a pebble and rolling an ankle.
