Has anyone tried putting whitewalls on a 650 Custom?

It might just be that I am getting old, (I'm 53) but when I see whitewall tires on cruisers I think it's a very nice look. I have seen some very nice whitewalled 650 Classics, but never on a Custom. Is this because it would not look so nice as on the Classic, or just because no one has thought to do it on a Custom yet? So I'm curious to know whether anyone has any pics of a 650 Custom with whitewall tires. (I'm afraid to be the first to try it, in case it doesn't look as nice as I think it will!)

they look ok on bobbers so why not a custom? give it a try, if you don't like em not to worry, tires usually only make one season anyway.

dumb bikers don't get to be old bikers

I looked and looked but can't find the pics of wide whites on my 650 classic.
11 out of 10 upgrade on stock bodied bike.
Had to park mine while working over seas and my Daughter talked me into letting her swap tires with me. Now hers is sharp and mine needs tires. Lol

WILL be going back whitewall.

Looking at the custom, I'd think it would look snazzy with them as well.
