Disguising a classic

I have a 1985 Trek 520 fixie conversion that I am converting to a single speed and flat bars for my daughter to use at college. I am a little concerned about her leaving a decent vintage bike out on the sidewalk, during classes. It would be in her apt otherwise. So I am thinking about plasti dipping the frame, or wrapping it in friction tape, to ugly it up a bit so maybe thieves will leave it alone. Am worrying about nothing? If not, do you have other ideas that will not damage the original finish, but will hide what the bike is. I know the lugs give it away to anyone "in the know."
