Residing under the more colorful, shapely fenders, a set of Buchanan's rims and spokes were laced by Lemon Grove Cycle Supply to the polished and chromed OE hubs. The oversize rims, when paired with lower-profile Dunlop tires, give the bike the California look (a rubber band on big wheels) and still maintain an approximation of stock diameter, thus avoiding potential handling problems. Palhegyi said he simply "wanted to see some more air through the wheels." Next, Palhegyi dropped Tequila's suspension a couple inches front and rear, but he utilized the stock components. The rear shock was reworked, while the stanchions received the hacksaw and spacer treatment. In fact, most of Tequila's bolt-ons (like the passing lamps and the fork slider caps) were dreamed up by the Yamaha accessory team for V-Star owners to lavish on their rides. The rest of the shiny stuff -- both polished and chromed varieties -- was produced at Quality Polishing. Finally, a set of BUB Enterprises pipes gives Tequila additional shine, as well as a throatier voice.
