Just a sad little footnote to this thread. I got a "great" deal yesterday, on a 1989 Cannondale SM400, in beautiful RED, and in the hard to find 22" size. I knew it was mistreated, it badly needed a repaint, but took a chance. After some cleaning, I discovered a nasty crack, near the BB shell and seat stays. 😩 Look before you leap comes to mind, a little too late this time. 🙄😉

Nothing like de rosa red.... only problem that color is the only one that my wife has ever noticed on a bike...and bike extension noticed the bike.... as in "when did you get that and do you really need it?"

Unknown model or year Bianchi that I've been building up. I have new old stock brake calipers that I'm replacing those Shimano Adamas AX ones with.





My $30.00 saved from the dump Miyata 710 that came with new tires with the cardboard tag still wrapped around them. Wheels have Shimano 105 hubs.



Cheers

That's a nice colour, has a bit of class about it. Hope you don't mind me writing that down for a possible job in the future.

No worries, its dark most of the time so....

Not sure exactly how it was done, ended up with this when I said "I want it darker the Sarinoni red", Black Magic supposedly used just the basecoat.

Cool thanks for telling me that. Primer or basecoat makes a big difference. I mixed a rich red primer under a red top coat on one bike and it looks neon out in the sun.
