What color are the wheels going to be? Matching yellow?

So, after hearing the trash can getting the H beat out of it, we're looking at the dinner plate size bear tracks in the snow. My wife says, "Why don't you go down and see if it's still there?"!!!

I actually just got the wheels back from the powder coater, we used Prismatic Alien Silver, it's spot on to the oem silver for that year, it took us 3 wrong silvers to find it, I'm stoked with how they turned out!

Finishing off the Gixxer restoration with the last bits, she's 100% oem now, even removed my Zumo, TPX, and heated grips. While up there also switching over to the rare Ybody in the unicorn yellow, this will be my first yellow bike so that's pretty exciting, also can't wait to see the silver wheels we had powdercoated last year mounted up.

 >:D

Wow! Silver wheels are a great refinement. Are those right angle valve stems? Very cool!
