Color Scheme thoughts

Hey all, Im anodizing my calipers red, And i thought about doing my fork tubes in red like these

Then i started thinking... if i have to take the fork apart... Well what if i powder coat the dropouts and triple clamps in white??
Then i thought maybe go one further... do the frame sideplates and the swing arm in white also...
heres a pic of my bike currently:

what does any one think? can anyone photo shop that?

I would have to say no.

That bike looks DOPE in blue. Don't ruin it by contrasting the colors. I wouldn't do a THING to your bike...I know the bug bites and it's hard to resist, but dude, your bike looks HOT as it stands.

+1, but it's your bike, do what you want...

BTW, are you trying to do your own version of "Brutale America"?

IMHO, no... red forks are so rare and with the blue bike it will clash... it'll just look like you are trying hard to be different for the sake of being different.

But it's your bike, you do what make you happy, also IMHO.

Those red forks...might look hot on a white or black bike. Black, as in, 910R, even then, that's pushing it.....I don't think they'de look good in any other situation. Even a Brutale AMerica, I think it'd be "too much".

Eek...it doesn't look as bad as I thought, but it's still not quite as pretty as stock...
