How about a circa 1993 Klein type approach? Oh, hang on...

I think some kind of powdercoat white with contrasting links & pivots would look good, especially if you can get the pivot bolts anodised to match (gold perhaps? very bling... :P )

Never thought there was enough metal to show off a really good paint job.

Pick a good base colour and sticker it up? When you get bored you can mix it up easily then?

Being a bit of a fashion tart I usually paint my personal stuff like frames, forks and helmets to match my new riding kit lol. However it's always a personal thing and I would start with what colours you like first.
