Can you guess what it is? (Teaser alert!)

Something new (to me) and totally unexpected has joined the herd. Can you guess what it is?

The paint job is exquisite and the color is really incredible. The original owner worked in a bike shop, ordered it and sent it back to Waterford for a custom paint job. It's tough to photograph accurately because it looks almost black. But it's not: it's a metallic deep forest green that just sparkles in the bright sunlight. It's a 1989 model, so I'm not certain it qualifies as C&V but it most certainly is a KOF frameset. I'm not certain I like the bars, and I'm debating about using a contrasting handlebar wrap. I really like my Regal saddles, but I'm also not certain it's the right "look" for this bike and so I'm waffling over swapping it out for a Flite that I've got. Not much clean up to do other than a slight wipe down needed on the chainrings. Here it is as it was when I picked it up this morning (except for the addition of saddle and pedals which I added when I got home.) Better pix to come when I have a chance to get it into the studio and light it properly.



Bright and early tomorrow morning she will go out for a good long and fast test ride.

Late to the game, but my first thought was "Paramount." Great score!

The fork is not bent enough, needs more fork rake.

I was thinking this might be the first bike where the front wheel is as close or closer to the down tube as the rear to the seat tube.

Yes, Athena, but with the Campy-recommended Centaur long cage RD to accommodate the triple (52/42/30) up front. And maybe it was just the adrenalin pumping through me at the time, but the ride was magical this morning. Can't wait for tomorrow to get here!
