The paint looks really nice, even though it isn't quite a la Yo. I think all UK cycle painters seem to use Italian colours, since Italy is of course the centre of the cycling universe. Or their cycling universe anyway. US colours are slightly more wacky/arty, compared to the lush/elegant Italian colours, so it isn't really possible to recreate the original. But the frame looks great anyway.

Respect for converting the SIDs (which again look superb with the frame).
