Most of the modifications to Eleganza— lengthening the tank, bolting on mile-long straight pipes, extending the rear fender while keeping the now dwarfed-looking stock fender rail, and attaching the rear fender to the swingarm—were directed toward enhancing the already long, low lines of the Royal Star. Copying a trick used by hot rodders, Berg "slammed" Eleganza two inches closer to the ground through the use of Cobra's fork lowering kit and his own rear linkage. Other clever tricks, like altering the radius of the rear portion of the front fender, fool the eye into thinking the bike is even longer and lower. Similarly, to give the appearance of lowering the frame even more, the stock cast wheels (16 x 3.5 inch front and 15 x 4.0 inch rear) were replaced with Hallcraft's 80-spoke wheels. The large 17 x 3.5-inch front and 17 x 5-inch rear wheels, when combined with Dunlop's low-profile 160/60-17 tires, help make the frame appear to hang lower. Hallcraft's wheels' special vacuum silicone sealing allows tubeless tires to be used with the spoke rims, and the wheels self-balance themselves, utilizing an endless rubber tube partially filled with mercury. As the tire rotates, the mercury constantly adjusts itself to achieve a perfect balance.
