regrettable sale of my newly custom painted PACE RC300 frame!

this was a long term project, my plan was for a pair of RC31 forks and M960 xtr group with some crossmax or xtr wheels, a 3DV moby post, silver CK aheadset, 3DV anodised x-lite L168 stem and 3DV hyperite bars to finish it off!

the frame was bought on here with a cracked weld at the headtube. i had this repaired (see my pace rc300 headtube repair post) and had gussets fitted. the frame was vapour blasted and was then custom painted in a violet pearl finish with silver metalflake, the carbon seat tube was clear-coated with the final topcoat too, it looks amazing, silvery/greenish-white until the sun hits it when it glows violet!!
pictures really don't do it justice!!

all the small black plastic hole plugs and internal brake cable inserts have been refitted, along with new bottle cage rivnuts as the old ones were seized, nice red ano ones along with rainbow ti bolts.

looking for £375 inc post (PP gift please)

cost me £440:
frame £180
welding vapour blasting £50
paint job: £200
new seat collar: £10

size medium:
seat tube: 430 mm centre bb top of post clamp
top tube: 560 mm centre to centre

cheers!
