Or do I make a Gran Sport in the metallic of my choosing? Decals are available.

Now there's something original.

Bob's colours

The Team replica was a custom built frame with shot-in rear stays so not the same frame as yours (even though it is 531c), I personally would make a custom Gran Sport. Still way cool and no-one can call you out on it. Not even us poor 501 frame owners with lovely chromed dropouts 8) :wink:

Lovely. I’d go for a custom Gran Sport, the Albicocca looks a nice colour, and not a million miles from the original.

Hmmmm. Black lug lining? Maybe too much with the black decals. Or would it compliment?

Needs to be a proper metallic or pearl.
