I'd powder coat the frame a color other than black. Maybe leave the bike black with an orange frame?
I went the other way. Since those pics, I found a '77-80 XLH 2.50x18 rear mag, reworked the spacers and threw it on. The rear blinkers were replaced with aftermarket units and the front fender replaced with an Arlen Ness Cafe.
I also put the belt drive back on. Big difference!! The bike feels sluggish with the belt, compared to the chain. I may put the chain drive back on later.

I also have a 4.2 gallon tank I just shot black. I haven't made up my mind which way to go, whether to just throw a decal on and clear or do something fancy in a green color.
It's a work in progress.
