  • Ugly-ness

    Now that I have these short pipes on my bike, I can't help but notice the rear brake caliper mount. It's not just that it's unsightly, but it's very modern looking. It doesn't fit the theme of the bike. It's bad enough having disc brakes to destroy the retro look, but I do realize we live in faster times, and I do enjoy stopping quickly when I encounter some dickweed texting instead of driving. Just wondering if anyone else has done anything to kind of clean things up back there. Otherwise, I'm just gonna zap it with some black spray paint.

      Naaa, too Gold-Wing-ish. At least on the front we have those pie tin looking things to kind of detract from the disc brakes. I'm thinking more along the lines of a cleaner, simpler mount. But I think I'm gonna end up with the foo-foo can treatment instead.

    Paint it clear or camouflage, then you won’t see it!

      Or bury it in the dirt for a few weeks and since you say that you don't wash your bike it will blend in.

        I don't wash my bike. That's another thing, if I spray paint it, I'll have to clean it off first so the paint will stick. Perish the thought!

          FP, I think you will like it Black. It's cheap and easy to do. Try it first.
          I painted mine satin black and it blends into the frame really good. Painting the inner center part of the rotor satin black helps the look too.
          Thats just my opinion.

            Yea, I like it, painting the center of the rotor also. I'll just start calling it The Rust-Oleum Road Star..

            Glad you mentioned that Mike. I have been looking at those, namely, some rather pricey La Rosa bags, and came very close to pulling the trigger on a cool distressed one. Thanks for the heads up!
