Olszewski is a firm believer in keeping things visually simple. Consequently, he didn't succumb to Chrome-and-Leather Disease, which befalls many cruiser enthusiasts with their first bikes. Instead of opening a catalog, pointing to all the shiny stuff and saying "gimme," Olszewski considered each part for how it would complement the whole. Often he didn't even replace, but rather modified the OE parts. For example, the Road Star's floorboards are nice to look at, but didn't offer the sparkle Olszewski wanted. Where one rider might phone Cobra for one of its billet sets, our man Olszewski crafted brass inserts to fit in the grooves already present in the OE rubber pads. In the center section, he cut a space for a Star concho pirated from a Yamaha Accessory saddlebag. Next he shipped the homemade brass pieces along with the floorboards' mounting bracketry to be chromed. The result is a set of floorboards that have both a factory and custom look.
