Lovely colour indeed, used to have a metallic chocolate brown frame bitd (it was supposed to be black but the sprayer got it wrong!).

REALLY looking forward to seeing this build, especially in regards to the colours for components.

I've taken the liberty of making a quick "levels" adjustment, as the original is about two stops underexposed (having been taken against a white background). Looks nice, anyway 8) . I like these unusual colours - I was painting a wooden chest a sort of "Moss Green" yesterday and thought that would be a nice colour for a bike too.

Thanks Andy - that is much closer to the real colour!

I cannot tell you how excited I am to get it built up!
