IMHO, way, way, way too much money spent on that bike. I hope he plans on keeping it forever because he'd only get about $4,000 for it if he sold it, and I wouldn't even give him that much. I don't care for a lot of the things he did to it. Just too much "bling". Can you say "pimp my ride"?
Chrome is nice, he must have spent a lot of $$$ on this bike. I've thought of adding more chrome to mine, replacing black pieces, etc. but I think the balance of black and chrome is good right now. Mine is not a show bike, it's a riding bike!
