if ya know what you are doing it would look kool... I personally would peel the chrome off of the guage cups. and make sure to rough up the headlight real good first.

I'm extremely partial to black and chrome so don't ask me!!! I would keep the black I have, gloss the hell out of it, then keep adding chrome stuff until the bike looked "balanced". Just my .02...
