Thanks THM. As you can see, period correctness and taste have long gone out the window. I'm thinking maximum offensiveness with one eye on comfort and the other on my wallet.

I like your thoughts on colour coordination, please continue. I am ready.

Although I must say, those don't look very comfortable. I want it to ride like an antique chesterfield couch.

You too can achieve.

eBay and long distance long delivery time Asian accessories beckon. Vulgarity on a shoestring.

Individuality is the key. You must also learn to walk across rice paper without leaving a mark.

None cause discomfort from the position of rider, only for those failing to appreciate their beauty as they pass, never to be copied or equalled. The antithesis of aestheticism.

I was actually looking for those bars for this build, alas, I hadn't yet learned their proper nomenclature - "Mary bars". Which made the translation into Chinese even more difficult. It's becoming painfully obvious that I have much to learn from the king of pimp.

Try your risers upside down. It goes all cafe racer.

Pets are not off limits. Mrs HM did not approve.

Those bars are foo King offensive but make we laugh in equal measure...

If Ralph wasn't locked up I'd send him round to rescue the dog (poor thing)

Good job matching the dog to your saddle. Which brings me to my next point. I'm not sure the gold chain adds enough vulgarity and bling. Might need to get some matching shoes to seal the deal.
