Whats up people. My frame just came out of the paint shop and wanted to show the result.

I've always been a fan of Martini Racing so decided to repaint the frame with those colors.

I didn't want to do a full white paint job. I prefer black for bikes.

My inspiration were Lancia delta integrale in black and black Martini Porsche.

I will be picking it up this Saturday and maybe built this weekend.

Love it!! That turned out very nice.
Did you do anything with the fork?

Excuse my lack of knowledge in this, but what frame is that? I'm unable to identify it.

That's pretty cool actually.

Two questions: Which frame did you use? Who did the paint?

Eager to see the final result.

Edit: prendrefeu beat me to it... :-)

haha Euan got it right. Its a Specialized Roubaix frame. I was fed up of the old paint job so decided to do Martini racing colors.

I didn't want a complicated or too loud paint job, so I kept it simple.

This is what it looked like before:

went to pick it up this morning:

@Prendrefeu: As you can see I took off the logos on the fork and had the inside painted white.


@mellowjohnny: I had it painted by
Its a paint shop near Montreal. He's a friend of mine and does very good work. His carbon repair skills is amazing too.
He's the official painter of Cervelo for the RCA frames. All the R5CA and RCA that you see around are painted by him.
