Just My Opinion, The military color looks great, however, a true "military " bike would have ZERO chrome, as they did not want to be seen at night. Think of all the money RE could save if they didn't have to chrome anything!
The older models had green wheels and green/black engines. I think the earliest UCE Military's off the line had green wheels (a friend has one) but now they are chrome. Economy of scale, the painted ones are more expensive since they are such a small minority of the production. Cheaper to make everything chrome.Zero chrome with a black exhaust would look way cool but even just getting rid of the chrome wheels and polished side covers would be a huge improvement.Scott
Wehrmacht grey would be a nice colour.If you add a swastika, you could get in to all sorts of arguments with those who only know the swastika from the Nazi's and not as a peace symbol, from where it was hijacked.
I do not recall the Balkan Cross being used on Motorcycles much. It was relatively common on armored vehicles and aircraft but not so much motorcycles.If you want to do Deutsch Afrika Korp but want to avoid the swastika one of the better solutions is to replace the Swastika normally in the center of the Palm Tree insignia with the initials DAK.
The frame on my Nortless was powdercoated. I wasn't terribly impressed by it's durability. I didn't particularly think it was any better then a regular old paint job. My only impression was that it was easier to get an even layer on, but there wasn't any difference in the paint once it as applied.bare

I've had the bike for 5 months and have yet to wash it.
Ducati Dark is just like that. Dirt doesn't show much on the flat black. I washed it once a year before I put it away for the winter. Then I stopped putting it away for the winter so avoided that pesky chore altogether Scott
I don 't feel bad not washing my bike, I don't feel ashamed either. I'm basically just GD lazy, and proud of it. OD green works for me!
