Dig the colors on the pro-lite, might debadge the wheels to clean it up a bit and add an all black saddle.
Bar tape on that Pro-Lite is an abomination.
My buddy's litespeed and my Manocoque at the lake they filled Friday the 13th at. (Crystal lake) Real life it is Sand Pond.

Fitzik glossy white or possibly red tap - since your saddle is white I'd start with white tape. Also need the seat post and stem to match IMO. And take the seat bag off.
Yes hot. Except the handlebar tape....or is that a tribute to Chris Anker Sørensen when he cut up his fingers in the TdF?
A friend of mine just started a frame building company (Runout Industries) and so I commissioned a custom titanium frame from him. The geometry is based on a KHS Flite 800 (prior to this my "best bike" frame), but with an extended head tube, and a PF30 bottom bracket.
I swapped the components (Campagnolo Centaur) from the KHS, and this is the result. Am I happy? Oh, yeah....

It's been interesting riding the new build because I can compare it so closely with the old one (on the KHS frame). The new frame feels a little smoother on rough pavement than the KHS did (although the KHS was/is very nice). The big PF30 bottom bracket is stiffer/less flexy than the old one, and feels like it transmits more power back through the bike. I've ridden the bike up and down some decent hills, and it goes up faster than the old one, and comes down very predictably (no shimmy or wobble at all).
This is my first custom built frame (after many years of cycling!) and it's doing exactly what I wanted it to so far.
