After lookin at all the photos,,,, gold. followed by silver. The black looks very,,,, common. BTW I've got black wheels on both my bikes. My Desmotimes Monster came with some very nice forged wheels in black. It works like a lightened flywheels and the suspension feels plush. Wanna do gold on my SS when money allows.

Damn fine idea.
Thanks, Hunde. I know Mike the Bike rode a bevel drive, but I think the air-cooled minimalist SS is the true successor of that amazing Ducati:



if you ask me this is THE look for a supersport:
Gold AND silver
Wow. Hard to argue with that. Nice wheels.

Those are pretty, but unobtainum unfortunately.
usually true but there's a set for sale on this forum right now. check the classifieds. :)
i thought about them but weight is the big issue for me.
besides, they belong on a real Superlight.

I don't want to steal your brilliant idea, but gold frame / wheels / other bits, with an interpretation of the MHR livery on a full-fairing SS might look amazing! I have some other aesthetic upgrades I'm designing for my 93, and these might just all come together! Mmmm, no headlight front end, drilled out for hi-mount oil cooler - with dual "endurance" style 100mm lights...

I have always loved those, and thought of replicating one with my 860GT that had been cut up by PO. Decided to return it to near original:

And you could make some nice CF fairings for the Halewood SS, Hunde. I look forward to seeing some updates on that.:)

I'm in the same boat for my '97SP. No idea what color to anodize them, or who to trust to do the work. I want to mount them SOOOO bad, but I'd hate to mount up tires as they are now and then have to pay to have them unmounted again when I decide to paint them.



Gold is a bold choice. There was an episode of Top Gear where Jeremy is talking about buying a brand new F355 Ferrari and wanting a green one.. but at the last second as he's sitting down with the salesman he breaks down and orders it in red lol.

Me at the anodizer (skip to 1:18 mark):
