The silver screws/bolts on the picture, do they exist in black? Where can I order them?
Or do I plastidp them?

It's one of the parts that's the least thought on. IfI was the chief designer, I sent them straight back to change the color and the placement opf the bolts. This could be so much better

Looks like a standard grade bolt. It's not a high stress area. Well, OK, it is in that they're pretty much responsible for keeping the bike off the ground, but still. I'd take one out and match it up in a black oxide version at the local hardware store.

I re plated most of my bolts a gold colour.
You can get black zinc or cad plating or even nickel for a shiny black look.
Or just pop the bolts through a piece of card and paint the heads?

I prefer matt black, stil on my wishlist, not yet on my todo list :)

My todolist for next maintenance :
Replace backlight with integrated turnsignals
The oxford neptunes led turnsignals which are now on the back will go to the front
Replace all breaklines by steel or kevlar, possible with replacement pads
Weel decalls

Should be somewhere in November I guess, depending on the Belgium weather
