BlackBagger, bike looks great! I was actually going to go with the same foot controls and pegs like you but thought about waiting for the new design like the 08 floor boards have. What made you not wait? Was it hard to switch them over? Either way the bike look awesome man, anymore side shots of the motor on each side?

Just my 2 cents and totally my own humble opinions:
Be careful to not go overboard with the black.
Too much of anything will make the result look boring.
Contrast makes everything more visually appealing.

I sold my 08 floorboards and passenger footrests, because there are no inserts in black for it. Bought a used pair off eBay and powdercoated them, and still had money left over.

Primo, you're right, thats why I left some chrome and added some red.

I agree with primo, it's all about creating contrast.&nbsp\\; It's the reason I don't have a black pipe on the bike.
