Hi Peter

For me the author of the wheel article in R world said it all when he said “you don’t want too many colours going on”. Different coloured engine cases and discoloured wheels do make our bikes look their age.
The rivets have been a topic of conversation for many when talking about refurbishing wheels and in fact the standard silver rivets have H on one side. This owner has chosen to powder coat the wheels complete with rivets therefore leaving the rivets gold, while Gary pulled the wheel apart to get the original anodized look then used Stainless Steel cap head screws with lock nuts. I guess the question is which do you feel looks best?
