I've always thought Gulf livery would look great on a bike, and yours proves that to be the case.

Cool bike -- thanks for sharing.

Great job, love a personalised project - but can't believe that you didn't a). continue the orange pinstripe up the front of the seat post and b). didn't paint the stem to match. You need to look at Baum for lessons :wink:

The painting added only 5 grams of total frame weight! This was possible, because I did quite alot of sanding
before painting.
