Hypurone's bike is actually what sold me on the Carrozzerias.

Easy, I actually have an F3 rear wheel sitting in my garage, because I started to gather parts for a setup like yours prior to deciding I wanted the Carros. I LOVE the look of that setup!

Gosh I'm jealous. Wheels are a very expensive upgrade but a worthwhile one at that. I'll have to save up and then upgrade when necessary.

very nice, you need a scootworks belt drive to keep them nice, especially the machined finish, i installed one last week, only 800 miles already tired of greasy rear wheel + tire, guess my harley spoiled me, everything else on the bonnie is better though!!

What additional parts does one need outside of the wheels to get a setup like this? I really like the hybrid modern/classic look of these.

Yes I have the Talon wheels on my T100.

Just the speedo drive gear parts and cable. Carrozzeria offers the complete setup for a cost. I have posted the complete parts list in another thread if you want to go and get them yourself. They are Yamaha VMax parts IIRC. Just search for Carrozzeria Wheels....
