That Jules Verne style is kind of a root for SteamPunk stuff.
I really like steampunk when it is done well, done right. Some comes off just cheesey and trying to hard.
Yours looks good so far, keep it up.
I agree BTW that the CX, GL style horizontal V-twin is a good match for steam punk styling.
Very cool.

ps: I have 4 words for you....copper plated valve covers....
Any chromer does a copper layer before chrome so it would be pretty cheap to do and match the theme...change the look a bit for little investment.... or better yet brass plate all of the aluminum, not sure where you would get that done though or the cost......just my $0.02 though
