My 2007 Orbea Orca. It's copper leaf with a forced chemical patina applied. Not sure about the weight of my bike but I'm guessing the finish adds about 40-50g.

Thanks for the compliments. Looking for a frame to do in silver next. I'm hoping to get a burned chrome effect.

I'm not so keen on the bar/stem in that colour but the frame looks great!

Wow, that is unique... I wonder how a red color would look.

Thanks for checking out my bike. The patina process is completely unpredictable. But that's what makes each application unique. When the patina is added, the colours change from copper to amber, red, purple, blue, green, grey then black.
