This has been sitting as a frame in my parent's loft for too long, so I decided to have some fun with it :twisted: It's border-line too small for me, so I'm building it how I want, but for my Dad to ride...

This is how it was before:

This is a progress shot:

It's not finished yet, but I have a pretty good vision of how I want it to be. I've always liked the Serotta part-painted ti frames, and also the iconic Orange paint jobs. Not quite sure that I'm going to attempt a fade, I'll probably mask the join with a different colour stripe.
