    I use automotive single stage paint, works great on hubs
    I mix my paint for a lower gloss by the way or you could use satin finish

    For small parts that you want to paint with automotive paint or paint/hardener there is always those Preval sprayers. It is a small glass jar and a pressurized rattle can type top you screw on the jar. You do have to thin the paint a bit more then you would with a regular paint sprayer. But they do spray out several jar full of paint before running out of pressure. Saves a lot of cleanup for the really small jobs. You should be able to find them at Napa or paint supply stores.

    I have had great results with Rustolum black epoxy refrigerator paint over their heavy duty gray sandable primer for years. I've used it on frames, forks, even on gas tanks among other parts. It is gas resistant when given time to cure. It also comes in Almond and White. Hence some of my two toned tan and black paint schemes. Prep is 90% of a good paint job.

    Hubs were gloss, not satin finish, the same as all the black parts on an H-D.

    I've heard many people talk about dulling black paint to look authentic. As Robbie said, Harley-Davidson used gloss black. It may not have always come out glossy due to production factors, but they sure didn't dull it down on purpose.
