Had the itch to build/create something new again. Given the wait times due COVID-19, I decided it would be faster and cheaper to paint my black c64. I have always admired the Mapei paint schemes and seeing [mention]nismosr [/mention]build sealed the deal.

So I sought out a painter late 2020 and decided on. Velocolour in Canada. Noah and Suzanne had already done a few mapei iterations and I was able to see one in person a few years back when they visited Maglia Rosa. So I shipped off my baby with some reservations about the path I taken.

Velocolour is not where you go for an economical paint job, but their work is arguably some of the best in the world. As I was avoiding the 3 month wait, the $6.5k cost for a new Mapei, and most importantly, the headache of selling a used frame, I could splurge and have all 1 of 1 Italian frames in my stable.

From the pics of the painted frame, you’ll notice it resembles a stock C64 but I had them make subtle changes such as the cube colors, length of fade transitions, head badge, and so forth. Build isn’t exciting and merely a port over of parts from my black c64 with some minor changes to bar tape and tires:

Just superb .. does the C64 have a S/N nameplate on the BB you have removed? My C60 had this and it was a nice touch, intrigued if you've removed it.

Like mine, I believe this C64 has the S/N plate on the downtube between the bottle cage mounts.
