Thanks! The wheels are actually factory and just required a whole lot of cleaning. I used some kind of Krylon gold on the bars that was a pretty good match. For the frame I tested a lot of differnt shades and finally settled on flat aluminum engine paint with PJ1 epoxy clear gloss as a top coat. It's tough paint and the final result matches so well the rear engine mount that I didn't repaint looks spot on.
I didn't use any powdercoat as this bike is ridden and that stuff if tough to work with when it comes time to clean it up again!
