@kgt
Well, not to worry in case the accents doesn't go well the decals can be removed.

@majklnajt
You're right the pics doesn't do justice. It looks significantly better in person.
Anyway the built should be ready by this weekend.
As a matter of fact I myself can't wait till its done.
Components have arrived and the crankset will be arriving tmr. Stock standard Campagnolo SR
with the Ti crankset.

Components are in, and from the looks of it, it's going to be quite a challenge to go below 15 lbs or 6800 gr.
cmh's Master XL may still hold the record for being the only sub 15lbs Colnago Master in this forum.

Here are the components-weight breakdown in no particular order

Colnago Master 55 frame fork headset bb cups 2550 gr
Handle bar, stem 300 gr
Saddle, post 141 gr
Pedals 200 gr 
SR Ergo levers 333
R/d 159
F/d 71
Cable uncut 243
Chain uncut 241
Brakes calipers 180
Crankset 585

Wheelset
Front 760 
Rear 1080
Skewers 100

Edit: Total 6943 gr

Thanks for the compliment guys.

@Rumsas,
You should get a Master, this thing rides as good as any carbon bike!
The handling is typical Colnago hallmark. Precise, stable and assuring.
I'm afraid this may end up being my main ride from now :lol:

Normally not a fan of gold, but that's spectacular.
Only minus (aesthetically) is the stem angle. Parallel to the top tube would look nicer. But hey, I am quibbling :D
Would like to see it with all-black low profile wheels.
