droppedandlost, there's nothing wrong with a black bike and your's is beautiful, those chrome lugs and fork tips! One of the loveliest Formula 1 cars IMO was the black with gold leaf John Player Lotus, but again its how the black is done and what accents are there with the color.
The all black look, black frame, hubs, cranks, etc. just leaves me, and the flat black and titanium uhg, especially when you go to a vintage gathering where the color and chrome is just outstanding.
Same as you say with cars exteriors and interiors colors, exteriors are all Black , White, Silver with some Red and an occasional Yellow or Blue.
Which is why vintage bikes are "that's beautiful" in my wife's words.
