Ah, the mind boggling decision about paint. I go through this every time I build a bike and they always end up painted black! I intend to paint my current project blue, but I know it's going to be black. Yet I spend many anxious moments doodling designs in my chosen colors and even laying out tape on the sheet metal only break at the final moment and go with my well worn and chosen color....black! Fortunately there are various shades of black! A friend of mine recently built a near show quality chopper. It came time for paint and he couldn't make a decision. In the end, he shot gloss clear over gray primer and it looks great.

Lol.  Yeah, so far that is why mine is just satin clear over steel.

Kidding aside, I like the "clear over steel" on it now. Gives it kind of a raw hand built look.
The only change I'd consider would be maybe adding some flake to the clear. Give it a little Old School flare.

Hey, I like that idea.  I don't know if I've seen clear/flake.
