Paint. I did it about 3 or 4 years ago, and it held up very well. Has some nicks here and there from stones and what not, but after that long and the riding I do (not afraid to take dirt roads or trails), I can't complain.
The trick is to get a high temp paint that has ceramic in it. The ceramic will act like a hardener once cured, and helps to protect from chips. That and really good prep. I've painted parts on show cars from GM when the paint booth was full, and you'd never know the difference.
