Military "style"

Suppose one was to mock up a bike in military garb (circa 1937-45). Would you get as close as possible to the source (Royal Enfield Bullet or Ural)
Or take a modern classic like a Scrambler and farkle away?
Reason im asking is I saw a neat Bonnie done up in a WWII style despatch bike, but with a R75 twist. Wish I could post pick here but alas....
If it were me, Id go with the Bullet and keep it as close to the BSA M20 as possible (with blackouts etc)
If going along the German lines, the closest thing is the Ural (Im thinking solo- not outfit) or small bore 2 smoker a la DKW but whats close to that?
Anyhow just thinking aloud.....

The Bullet would be very cool looking and not so expensive as other options.

You can get either one of them in military editions, and the gear to go with that.

Ural's even have machine gun mounts. Go figure.
