new seat makes a difference, what do you think of the whitewalls?

I've been arguing with myself over the cost of replacing practically brand new whitewalls from PO just because of the look, I had enough saved up enough for blackwall ME880's along with the cost of having them mounted & balanced, rediculous up here btw @ $70 a pop... debated it for a day or two... then I found the seat locally and went for it instead, Pretty happy with that decision.

Is there a picture to go along with this?

Mom, I'm not wearing my helmet only for the purpose of taking this picture and
the background was digitally blurred to make it look like I'm going really fast.

I like the whitewalls, goes well with the bike. I'm sure they're a pain to keep clean though. I think you made a wise choice to spend your money on the seat instead. Buy new tires when these need to be replaced, not just because of the looks.

May I urge you to quickly change out that wet cell battery of yours and get an AGM maintenance free battery. I noticed it was first on your list. Perhaps on the way home from work...

I love the white walls. You should put them on the hard tail and paint the hard tail flat black.

I like the seat and agree with rubyrick, wear out the tires and change them out for blackwalls then, if you don`t like the whites.
