I used the 1615 and it looks pretty good.

Honestly if I do another bike I will not paint anything on the engine. I will have it glass bead blasted and then coat it with Corrison X and wipe it down often.

+1 on Dupli-Color aluminum engine enamel, followed with a coat of their clear engine enamel. This will get you pretty close to OEM Honda engine paint, and be durable and reasonably fuel proof as well.

I think I'm going to try a silver sold by marbles motors, he uses it on all his restorations and I like the look, only problem is the price ($22 per can and $15 shipping). He did say that one can should do a couple motors. I'm restoring a 1980 CB750F

Wow small world...I too am restoring a Honda CB750F but mine's a 1979. Like most here I'm going with DupliColor aluminum engine enamel followed by their clear engine enamel.

The duplicolor is also pretty fuel resistant if you bake it in the oven to cure it.
