If they have have Orange I am ordering!
Thanks! Ordering now!
I keep arguing with myself whether to get these or not on the liquid graph. bike i pick up in feb.
I love them but 1) not sure if they spoil the sexy blue rims or 2) look too gangsta lol
I just ordered this in red. We were washing the bikes and after seeing the red rims on hubs' 09 I had to have it.
Nice! I did mine in white/silver also. I took the stock reflectors off the bike, so I need something on the side. Love the way they changed the look of the wheels.
...additionally, the black reflector tape really doesn't look "black" in most circumstances/light. Mainly silver-ish or dark gray-ish in combination, with is okay with the liquid graphic bike color, imho.
To answer your question, CrazyCrack, the car behind the 07 in the pic is my 1966 Excalibur SSK, one of 97 of the first model built in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, by the noted industrial designer, Brooks Stevens and his two sons. It still has its original Vette 327 and Studebaker Avanti chassis with limited-slip differential, disk-brakes, traction-bars, and anti-sway bars front and rear. The Dayton wire wheels are genuine knock-offs supplied with the traditional lead hammer. Though Excalibur built about 3200 cars over more than a quarter century in Milwaukee they never built anything like the original again. The last 12 of the doorless, like mine, were built in 1967. Btw, the side pipes are totally functional and I have to warn riders that they do get HOT... sort of like a bike, hehehe!!! Fortunately, it has the original, optional step-plates above the pipes to ease getting in and out safely.
The pic below is of the assembly line... such as it was for a hand-built to order, very limited production car in 1965.
