Regarding the lady artist. Did her frame end up matching her pants?

Bingo, that's the general idea ;)

Corine completed the work on her frame which turned out to have a "Iggy Pop & The Stooges" punk theme, which is very much her style. Probably not to anyone's liking but certainly unique. Will be build up with full Campagnolo Record Pista, wheel size is 650c. Frame was build by Antonio Taverna...

awesome! :thumbup: even more so when the rider is the perfect match to this paintjob (or the other way round).

Enjoying this thread immensely.

Too many "standardized" frames out there in terms of colors and paint jobs...

Keep the pictures coming!

The frames are simple Columbus Cromor and Gara, but custom build for Corine by Antonio Taverna to her specifications. Because of their size (47 cm, 650c) they are not that heavy anyway, also thanks to the full carbon 650 fork. We will weight them when they return from the painter who applies the clearcoats.
