You've got a keeper for a wife Hope you got her an equally awesome gift.

The bike looks great. I'm probably odd but it did made me think of the box design for the old Olympus OM series cameras.

Yeah that sort of jumped out at me too. I'd think black would be better against the rims, but if you could color match the gold it would look good either way.

Nobody's asked so maybe they all know, but where did you get that seat?

I like it. That's a really nice paint job. I have those same mirrors. Are those mounted on the stock bar ends?

I believe that's a Top Saddlery seat. I want one.
