Re: Looks or performance.........
As has been said, form follows function. I'm for performance first, the machine has to function before I make it prettier.
That said, I'd also have to say it depends on the purpose of the build. Like a workhorse that does the daily commute or pulls a trailer vs. the funky custom cruiser or whatever.
Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
