Well, I'm not a specialist, but I'd keep the frame back. Looks more 80's badass in black with celeste hightlights, compared to all celeste..

i'd stick with the black personally as well. the celeste highlights look really nice and as the previous poster said it will stand out a little more because of that.

I would keep it black and throw more celeste green parts onto it..bartape, saddle, bottle cage etc 8)

I do love celeste green Bianchis though :?

As much as I like the celeste Bianchi's (I painted my steel Della Santa Bianchi celeste), I agree with this post.

I must admit those are my thoughts.
