I think I listed some bikes I've sold with that in the description. It is subjective but to me it's like Bill said, subtle. Not chrome bullshit or gaudy ...things that make sense-exhaust ,frame sliders, pc3 but again subjective.

When I see "tasteful mods", I think of exterior mods personally.
A carbon fiber hugger, smoked windscreen, tucked blinkers maybe...

This.

Tasteful means mods that most people would do to a bike if they were to modify it.

Bevo has not worked on it?
Nah, to me tastefull would mean I probably would not notice the mod unless I was told about it and then looked for it....
like make-up on a woman, If I notice it, it is too much...
