bianchi volpe: sizzling peach color match?

i've become rather enchanted with this color and would like to apply it some day to some little build. has anyone discovered a good match for this paint (or powdercoat)?

That’s my bike! It sure looks like one of the sellers pics when I bought it years ago.

Sorry, no I don't. Regardless, I always preferred Bianchi's Electric Rose.

well, worth a shot. thanks the same!!

yes..i remember a post i read of your preference. i like almost all bianchi's colors, but for some reason this peach just grabs me. i like how the hue shifts under lighting. is it pink? is it orange? almost a red? cool stuff

well, like i said..."almost".
otoh, i'm not really sure which color you mean. is that when bianchi went USA? if that is the color i'm thinking of, it's okay i suppose. iow's, i'm not hugely repulsed by it nor in love. i do prefer the original c'leste, though. it has more green and white to it. much better for gumwalls
