Okay, if you strip the colour (clear coat needed, though), then go for 950/952. That grey will look awesome!

Take a look at these pics: A tig-welded Karakoram without paint:

Maybe you should add a few gold or orange items. That will go nicely with those "welds".

thanks. but the frame won't stay yellow, it will be different. it won't have any color at all so you can see the golden fillet brazes ;)


Oh, wait,............ you´re gonna strip an entirely perfect original paint job of an iconic frame in order to "reveal the beauty" of fillet brazed joints?!?

This frame is re-sprayed. So no original paint will be lost.

Ditto on this one, stripping the paint off this frame would be a crime.
