I saw one of the Look carbon fibre frames in the La Vie Claire colours a couple of years ago. I loved the paint scheme. The white pearlescent was lovely. I decided then to recreate one using a Raleigh 753 frame, it definitely was 753 tubing but the frame number did not begin with SB The braze ons were similar to alate 80's/early 90's bike. I removed the cable routing braze-ons and had three new ones put on the top tube. I also used a Rossin fork with the correct Cinelli fork crown instead of the 753 fork that came with the bike.
I sprayed it in the garage using 2k paint and used a metal flake in the clear coat to make it sparkle.
