All dressed up and no place to glow

I went with white wrap...
(the confusing lines caused by the other picture subjects were intended to be "artsy" --but it went horribly wrong).

That's the next project behind it --restoring an old Mel Pinto Tandem.

The white wrap works. Another option that I think would look good is natural cork. Maybe even with shellac to make it look more yellowish. That is a nice looking bike. I bet it rides very comfortably with the 853 steel frame. I was going to rag you about the pogo post, but you mentioned your prostate, so I guess you have a need for extra cushioning.

I wouldn't have thought of white, but it works.
