well; as i will get hammered by all of the old school purists.....
going with PPG Portafino metallic blue..which is as close as I can get to the old Imron color of Ice blue.
dark blue 'K' on the head tube....
wanted something different......and with those big tubes, I think it will look stunning....
more pics to post as they roll in from the painter
