Going with an old school hot rod look

Ok... so at the beginning of September, I got my 1980 Moby 50v. It is in a condition that is not suitable for restoration... So that means I get to customize.

Since I am waiting for a new carb from 1977mopeds... I decided to start to work at the front of the bike to make it look the way I want. I pulled off the front wheel and checked the drum and brakes, cables, etc... And since I had time, I painted the wheel, a flat black hub and a chrome red for the wheel itself. The spokes have not been painted at all, I am thinking of painting them white....

Opinions on this please... the whole bike is going to be flat black, with chrome accents, I had to attach the picture to this post because I cannot get the picture to show up in this post.

Thanks,

~John

PS - I am going to be looking for the ever elusive 17" white wall, feel free to point me in the right direction. Since I have to get new tires anyways, I would like the white walls!
