    Always prefer a silver engine myself, but in this case I think a black one would show the frame up a treat.

    I'm with @Bikerman on this. Black would look better imo.

    I also agree that a black engine on this bike would work better than a silver one. More continuity plus I think, as others have said, that black and gold look really good together. Please post pics when you have that engine in place!

    Thank you all for your replies and input. That, I think, has made the decision easier, especially as I have more black paint available! More pics will be posted. I'm hoping to get it sorted for the Classic Bike Show at Stafford in July. I hope to be on "The Thumperclub" stand upstairs in the main hall.

    Black but with some silver/polished bits would look great.

    Jap import then. That colour scheme is going to look tasty. I probably would have used the same gold through both the tank and frame. When will it be ready?

    Same gold wasn't possible as one is powder coated and other was sprayed. I'm looking to get it finished in next month, but you just never know in these uncertain times.

    Black, silver would look odd.
