Hhmmm - contemplating running the bike for a season without touching the paint.... Bit of a "rat" look.
I know it's a pain building it up to then strip back down for a respray but want to know if I like the ride before spending money on the frame.
I think a really good clean and polish and nice gruppo fitted and you won't worry about the paint...it's not like it's a wreck! I just finished this Pinarello, had similar thoughts but the original deco paint design is so 'cool 90s' it has to stay... I just stripped off all the stuff in the way, cleaned, touched in, replaced deals polished and reassembled...
Your bike is far from a rat! You'll deffo find a nail varnish match for the pink, can't wait to see the build...pink cloth bar tape???http://www.flickr.com/photos/51987088@N ... 588849806/
PS I have a pair of genuine Alfa 'greenclover' decals and white 'serpents' if you need any...
