There was a fella that put those fancy rims on his wing, but his was a 1000, so the rear wheel might be a little easier for you. Here is the link to thunderchild’s thread.

That is a dang good look. Surprised I didn’t come across it through the searches. The biggest trick, of course, is finding the wheels for a reasonable price.

Congratulations, saving a wing is more of an adoption than anything else.

Holy cow! How in the world did that happen?! Certainly wasn't expecting that when I popped in this morning.

Thanks all! I didn't think she was ready for BOTM, but I was proven wrong! Pretty cool having my ride on the front page of the site.
