This is the latest and last (for the moment anyway) addition to the Brute. I installed some 6mm wide red rim stripes on my silver Star wheels. Well actually my artist friend Jim did, as he has a much better eye. I like these stripes much better than the 11mm wide stripe I experimented with earlier. I got them at Mid Ohio for $10.00. They can easily be removed in about 2 minutes, if you wanted.

Cheers, Phil

P.S. Picture was taken at 2008 European Motorcycle Day at Larz Anderson Park in Brookline, Ma. on 9/21/08. I didn't win anything, but I was the only modern MV and the bike did garner a lot of attention. Just wait another 20 years!!

Do those silver stars keep spinning when you come to a stop? I think you should add
some red vinyl streamers to the bar ends to complete the look:yo:

Hey to each his own. Like I said they were only $10.00 and are easily removed. If you look at the current crop of Euro bikes, lots of them are featuring pinstriped wheels. This is just a test before I pay a pin striper.

I am just glad that I have silver star wheels and not those ugly flat black wheels. :stickpoke

No I would not have won because it is only a 2006 and the Show judges will not give out Awards to late model bikes, with good reason.

No spinners and ABSOLUTELY no red streamers! :jerkoff:

And no they are not retro reflective, but if they were they would only make the bike safer to ride at night. :laughing:

dearpixel,

I only try and do tasteful mods... :stickpoke

Hey did you go to the F1 race?? If so, how was it?

Phil
Didn't go for the race--turned down the offer of a posh seat in the grandstand cos I'm an arse, basically. Checked out the track & lights a few days before. It was fabulous. Did it look fab to you on the tele?
