If I'm understanding you, you'd like to emphasize the rough appearance of the bike? That's cool. Ghetto, but with style.
Maybe you can pick up some ideas from this motorcycle site: http://ratbike.org/
Ratbikes (and ratrods, for that matter) are interesting to look at. They seem to fall into two basic categories:
Cool Frankenstein machines with real jackleg engineering,
Gookwagons that are just a bunch of random parts and novelty crap that's thrown together.
I really like this kind of work done on beater bikes. Provokes ideas.
