1st generation Dura Ace inspiration needed

A first generation Dura Ace black gruppo popped up on my CL too cheap to pass up so now I'm looking for inspiration. I know you guys can share some great examples.

First generation Dura Ace in black are desirable but not all that common - (Not sure that you'll be overwhelmed with examples.)

- But if you want to find inspiration for your new group - you probably need look no farther than the concurrent black bike thread. You group would probably work well with many of them.

An orange Miyata comes to mind.

Something in a light metallic blue might be good.

Panasonic might have used black anno Dura-Ace too.

Just nothing Italian, back then the Italians thought only of Campagnolo.

Something from the Benelux region could go, Schroder, Flandria, RIH... Presto.

And currently on the stand for a full re-build:

I thought of this, too - Flandria team homage.

If you can't figure out what to do with that crappy old 1st-gen black DA stuff I guess I could take it off your hands....

Thanks for the ideas - I can see it looks great on light metallics and black. A red Flandria would be be fine.
It is going to up my game a bit. Everything I have so far is entry level. That's how it starts right..........
