I picked up a frame in the spring and its been sitting unloved in the garage whilst I considered what to do with it. It had been completely stripped and the chrome is flawless (full fork and rear triangle). It was originally a spumoni finish - mainly white with yellow, red and blue fade.

Everytime I think of it, I change my mind on colour scheme. It's a late 80s or early 90s frame (2 sets of bottle bosses and 130mm OLN). I've narrowed it down to:

A. Replicate the original spumoni
B. Solid red with white pantos
C. Banesto team colours
D. Pearlescent white with red decals and pantos

help me out here.

Pulling a chair up. I did the same a few years back with a shed of a Montello that also originally had the spumoni colour way. I had a full resto done in dark metallic graphite wich made the chrome and white decals look amazing. Anyhow, if I had my time again I'd refurb to original and re-do the spumoni. It's a colour way that was unique, of it's time and as a result is super cool. 8). PM me if you want any advice on painters as ive done loads of refurbs in the past. :D

I’ve gone for.....

Pearl white with red decals and Panto - sorry everyone!

Next question is what to build it with. I am wrestling with either Campag Record Titanium 9 speed - I have a complete groupset and wheels in near mint condition I also have a Dura Ace 7400 group that I’ve been collecting, mostly NOS 7 speed

That paint is wrong if it is an attempt to recreate the original. The colours were much softer.

See.

My frame came to me completely stripped. The only reason I know it is Spumoni is the traces inside the seat tube, head tube and a slight bit of colour in the GPT raised panto on the BB shell. There is no other trace of colour so I think that residue is the original paint.

They are not pastel shades though.
