I like that a lot, it ticks a lot of my particular shiny thing boxes.

It would be tempting to leave it all bare chrome but if it were mine I'd paint the main tubes only with a cherry red lacquer straight onto the chrome, then apply my decals and then clear lacquer the lot for protection, I know it's not catalogue and it would be a bugger to stop it getting scratched but it'd sure look pretty.

Thanks. I can't find any catalogue pics in colour anyway but thats pretty much what i was thinking, but maybe just paint the red panels where the decals go would look good??
Something like Colnago Di Saronni Red perhaps? Anyone know the paint code for that?
