Andy painted it as per the team bikes, it was in undercoat when I got it having never been used or painted from new in 1998.
Still trying to find out who built it
have been told Pinnerello - Ciocc and various other small Italian frame builders.
Came out of a ex team warehouse in Italy.

well what a fabulous paint job, you must be dead chuffed, I'm restoring a Colnago with this paint scheme, wonder if it's expensive to repaint?

very 80's paint job

try Andy for a quote or C & G in Liverpool as they used to do that very paint job in the 80's and might still have the stencils ??

Superb Barry! I bet it'll turn a few heads at TT's this season.

Go on, tell us what you did in the 10 :D

Thanks for the compliment
never got to ride the race as the tyres never showed up and it will only take 19mm rear tyres due to the frame design being so tight.
also its taking me ages to set it up as I'm a bit of a 'merckx' in the setting up department !!!!! but after 10 miles on the rollers its about perfect.
just making up some bar ends to ease the strain on my wrists.
so it will be the 14 miler on tuesday when it makes its debut weather permitting??????
big thanks to Andy Perks for the superb paint job.
