Color combinations

I have nice Austro Daimler Superleicht frame I am considering customizing rather than my standard "factory spec" restoration. Will probably build with a dura ace 7400 group and looking for suggestions on paint combinations. My painter has the decals available in the following colors: White, Black, Silver, Gold, Red and Blue, with the bonus being if I choose gold the AD pinstripe decals are available. So give me your ideas for some sharp color combos and feel free to add handlebar tape, saddle, etc suggestions. Some I considered thus far are Black frame silver decals, Pearl orange with black decals, Gold frame black decals.

You may have seen this pic before but I think it is pretty sharp.

Dark metallic red or burgundy with gold decals and pinstripes.
Brooks saddle in honey and matching bar wrap to go with the gum hoods.
Brown/tan cable housing from Velo.
And a gold toned chain.

Yummy!
