I'd like some advice on colour schemes please!
I bought this Fausto Coppi K14 fixed conversion on eBay. I am stripping it and using the frame for a road bike, (giving it the full Shimano 600 tricolor treatment). Can anyone tell me anything much about the frame? I think it's from around 1999.
. It's not a dull beige as the photos suggest, but actually pearlescent cream.

Time has come to choose saddle, bar tape, tyre
As the Coppi logo is green, I was thinking of making everything green. Still, there are so many shades of green, it might not all match.
Most red shades are very similar, and so will match well.
I think pink bar tape and a pink saddle could look good with black tyres.
I've seen brown leather saddle/tape work with pearl paint before.
Only thing I'll rule out is yellow, as it won't go with the pearl paint.
I'd like to use Benotto tape if possible. I have a white leather Turbo
saddle which can be dyed any shade I please! Failing that, I'll happily buy a coloured vintage Rolls saddle
if I can find one.
