Linseed oil, or wax. Or both! You'll have to re-apply and maintain the finish every so often, but it will look much more natural and organic to the bike.

The paint may benefit from a light polish before you wax or oil it, just to bring back the shine by getting rid of the oxidized layer. Be cautious though and do it by hand, an electric polisher might be too aggressive.
