    I think it's a good look, though of course you'll need an accent pand or two at the brake between the chrome and the paint. PPG makes a shade of silver they call "Liquid Mercury" that's out of this world, and is a surprisingly close match for the paint on my '74 Pro.

    OOPs. I misread your post. I thought you just wanted a chrome or silver fork.

    Sorry.

    I have a silver Motobecane LeChampion with a chrome fork. I converted it to 650B and added some Honjo alloy fenders.The paint at the top of the fork was peeling, so I stripped it all off. The top portion was rough bead blasted under the paint, so it's a unique effect, but I think it's okay. Here are some photos.
