Fabster, what is truly unique anymore? Bling? You talk of heard and sheep, ect. but what look hasn't been done to death? Chromed out and colorful paint has been done since the MC was first chopped in the 50's and 60's and has been done to death and well beyond. The Chrome look is older than most of us and hardly "creative" or unique anymore, not for decades. Some are absolutely louder than others with the busy graphics, but nevertheless, same circus.
The 02 was probably as unique as I have seen in many moons buy it too was just a blast of silver singularity and a bit daintier than I care for. In all reality, and thru time, the blacked out look, although first introed in the late 70's, is the least used look, especially OEM. I don't need my bike to be pretty, especially at the absurd cost of chrome and fancy paint or the price of an SE/CVO.
I will admit however, a small fortune in chrome bolts, nuts, brackets ect. The small chrome accents are just enough bling for me and really stand out much better against all the different kinds of black.

Fabbie, your bike looks hot, nicely done for that genre, I'm sure you get compliments all the time. It's just not everybody's thing.

I agree Vambino, and in our trolling we went both to opposite extremes of ridiculousness with the overchromed overblackened examples. To each their own according to their taste and every bike has its own beauty, hell if everyone was the same I would probably not even own one. Believe me it's a relief for me when I detail the wife's Deluxe 'cause even with all the chrome it has, its not as much as the SE. I've dechromed the SE to some extent believe it or not and I have a new set of rims waiting to be installed so I can give the Reactors and my eyes some time to rest as well as my right hand from polishing

We've trolled around bumping this thread but Now the question is: What the heck happened with the OP's original project?!?!

That's not a project, that would be art.

No I need someone to help me with a concept and color for a VRod that I want to pursue in building. The two people that showed interest have since not contacted me. So anyone available to assist?
