Yep, this is my original oem black set of bodywork RB, I'm doing a little customization to it...  ;) :)

Something to go with the green wheels I had powdercoated the other month.  :great: :beerchug:

Just so you know ZG, I am a fan!

I actually had your green version as my screen saver for a while. At work, folks would ask if it was mine, and my answer was always, "No, but same model, and the best looking bike ever!"

I love my blue '10, but that green is the cat's meow :))
