Cragelarson83 is cool... so far.
Honda Valve stem caps

I bought these online. They're not official OEM valve caps but they do have the Honda emblem on it I thought there going to be a little bit smaller but it is what it is. I just want to get some people's opinions on it because I'm kind of up in the air on if I like them or not.

Small stuff like this is what makes the vehicle into your car, since it does not affect the car in a positive or negative way i'd say put them on and take them off according to how you might feel about them on the specific day. I rocked side led side mirrors for 5 years and although i kept on getting mixed comments i left them on there because i liked the way they looked on my car until i finally got over them and took them off. I personally would not buy them but if they were on the car i would not take them off

Yeah, we're all old men (and women) here!

I like the Honda caps. Like Crankshaft said, it's the small touches that make your car individual. That's especially important when dealing with a car as common as the CB7! It's becoming less common, especially in such good condition... but still... little things to set it apart are always nice.
Depending on your area, there's a good chance they could get stolen, though. Easily removable shiny stuff usually gets targeted by neighborhood hooligans. I know guys that remove their stem caps and center caps nightly to keep them safe!

I have simply relied on my trunk monkey from Suburban Group® to keep my cars safe, not only does it work by neutralizing the threat but also dispose of any evidence
