  • blacked out frame?

    anyone got pics of a blacked out tls frame? I going naked but with black on black ghost flames and carbon/billet accents. trying to decide if I should black out the frame or polish all but the cast parts. what do you guys think?

                  those rearsets are protek's, i have em on my tls and love em in the reverse shift pattern. They have a rep of bending but i know three other guys with em and we all love em. hell of a deal at like 280.00 for the set.
                  So?

                      Yep, my rearsets did bend, a couple of times, but thats because I slid the bike down the road on its side twice.

                      However all it took was a big pipe, a torch, and a crecent wrench to bend them back mostly straight again.
