Before my frame got blacked, I bought some geegaws to fill the hole in the frame. These are from a Stelvio (or Bellagio). Now I'm not so sure. Thoughts?

Like'em better than the chrome doughnuts that are stock on my bike. Would you consider spraying them satin black to match the frame?

What stands out like dogs balls to me is the super gloss black pegs/levers, out of sync with all the other flat/matt blacks of the bike.

Is the paint meant to be flame orange melding into flame yellow or is it just the lighting? Looks Hot! (pun intended)

It's just the lighting.

I can't do much about the rearsets. They're anodised gloss black.


¯\_(ツ)_/¯

They'll dull out a bit eventually.
Love the look of the bike and the details...things like the little black out recesses to the bolt mounting spots on the engine covers.
Good job Mark. Thumbs Up

I like it, but you might consider adding some little number decals to confound the belly scratchers who look at it.  cheers

I did that to the crash-bar plugs on my EV. Used Knob Creek cork stoppers with the black knurled edges on tops. Love the "What's that for" questions. Change my answer every time. Very Happy

You could also do with a nice anodised alloy rear brake fluid holder :-)

Mark, I think you should up the WTF factor a bit.

...I'm just playin", I actually like your solution a lot. I do agree it would look better in black. And I think those rear sets are the bomb! Great lookin' GRiSO.

I use mine to house a puncture repair kit.  Came in handy last weekend to repair a puncture on a Panigale.  No need to remember to pack it.

It looks good without the 'porkchops' but continue blackening out some more parts.  Thumbs Up
