SR Royal 42t 170mm / Shimano un-54 italian threaded 107mm

Bought this frame in a terrible condition. Hoping to make this into a proper gentleman's bike for the next tweedrun. I think I'm halfway there, but I'm pondering whether to respray it in black, original green or classic beige.

Crank upgrade / downgrade

I changed the Shimano 600 cranks to another bike (Rossin Infinity) I'm currently building up. Now there is a SR Royal chainset on the driveside and a Shimano 600 on the left-side. I'm not sure if it is a downgrade or an upgrade since the new cranks weight less, but at least the drive-side is in need of polishing with alloy paste. Also the SR chainring is pretty worn and does not really match bike's style and matching left crank would be better.

Regarding the painting I have been digging some dark red and olive greens lately. I'm thinking I will drive the bike over the winter (needs studs upfront) and paint in the springtime when I have the Rossin finished. Although road salt will not be doing any good to the parts of the frame already stripped from paint.

black

I'm in favor of painting it black... Would be a nice match with the saddle.

Black would always be in style

I really like the green and black is little boring, but I guess in the end that would be the way to go. Maybe I should add some white or gold accents on the lugs? Modern white Bianchi decal up front?

I'm thinking of changing to cheaper cranks as the 600s are little too tempting to steal from a beater like this. I just need to get the Thun Aero Coronado cranks tapped to 9/16" pedal threads. I already switched the saddle quick lever to a nut in hopes of keeping the Brooks bit more safe.
