So My early 80's celeste Bianchi is and has been my project for the past year. I am wanting to keep the bike for a long time and it needs some new painting since there is a bit of bubbly rust around some lugs and on the bottom of the bb shell, and other places. I got a quote for 125 for a basic bike frame set to be powdercoated with a stock color, single layer, about 190 for dual layers.
Here is the question, and i need some opinions. Paint the frame the original celeste, or go custom while maintaining the few bianchi identity logos on the crown of the fork, head tube badge and seat stay B's.
If you vote for a custom color, give your suggestion. thanks everyone.
