Not sure what the specific colour red is called - it's the original paintwork - but it is just normal glossy red - no metallic finish.

Sorry I can't offer more info.

Upgraded the seatpost to a Thomson Elite.

A new Hope seat Collar, white bottle cage, reduced the travel to 80mm to retain more of the original 1999 geometry and today added some M350 SPD's.

Gorgeous. I love the idea of old frames with modern components. Did it have those disc tabs stock on the rear?

Yeah the disc tabs were on there when I bought it - 22mm Hayes Disc Mount - commonly found on Kleins and Treks this age I think.
