Got done welding up my new handlebars for my motorcycle. And trying to decided against gloss black or gloss white powder coat. The small fairing is going to get painted blue to match the bike.

I saw a Instagram picture from zombieperformance, that put the thought in my head that might be able to pull of white bars..

White is prone to yellow with UV exposure.

Good call. I didn't even think about that.

Fuck dude, someone might want to run a knobby dirt bike tire as a front fender..... Do whatever the hell you want. Too many people caring about every little detail and hoping its chopper cool.

For sure do what you want. But it helps to have a different set of eyes give feedback. I like white bars on some bikes. Just depends on the rest of the bike. Those bars look cool btw.

Appreciate the feedback! I agree it is my bike and have made it my own. Definitely to each there own!

Sometimes its good to have someone agree or disagree with some of my crazy ideas. I like having creative discussions. Not many creative people around to spit ball ideas off of.

Shit right now I'm considering doing them a gold color similar to the header wrap. Worse comes to worse I get them coated whatever color and I change it because I hate the color.

The yellowing would be my concern. From an aesthetic point of view, I thought they look cool. If you did go white, or gold, or blue, or whatever, create a bunch of details on the bike to reflect that choice ( like the gold muffler wrap idea ). That's all I've got.

I ended up with Satin Metallic Gold. I think it turned out pretty sweet.

Blasted stainless would be awesome.

I think it works well with the paint and overall look of the bike.

I'd ride the crap out of it!

Nice choice on the color. Would've voted for that if it was an option.
