Later, Keith would really exploit paint masks, so possibly.
Great talent.
But, it does not pay enough.
from time to time on his flickr feed he would strip a near completed frame if it was not up to standard.

just as one benchmark of the era, I've got this page from a 1990 issue of Bicycle Guide.
It strikes me as more of an "overspray" scheme than splatter, per se, but what do I know?



I never warmed up to this sort of paint, nor to the idea of 650C wheels on large bikes.

Kind of from the debate, it was Senator Lloyd Bentsen who reminded Dan Quayle that he was no Jack Kennedy.

I have that same exact frame but taller and someone just took a spray can to it. They didn't do a good job and the paint is flaking off.

Here is the only picture I have at this moment as it is sitting at the local bike co op as I didn't have enough room in the car to take it and the also poorly spray painted Shogun mixte home at the same time.

I think it"s called "fade"...and I like both fade and splatter paint if done well.
Best, Ben
