Factory custom art decor, candy apple red to black fade. I'm not sure about the stealth logos but considering it's the new logo maybe not such a bad idea....

Much sharper pics of this bike...

WOW, beautiful colour AND you got the 5 arm version too! I've always thought the new 4 arm was good since I have the Chorus 4 arm, but looking at your SR 5 arm spider....damn!

maybe this is a stupid question, but is your crankset compatible with 'newer' campy stuff...ie Chorus/SR components....chain, FD, RD etc etc?

The fade to black is covering it up. I'd say the painter could have transitioned that a little better but otherwise a gorgeous bike.

Are you talking about this?

That's shadow from the drops right where the red fades to black.

Saw this today in FB. Another limited edition? This is one hell of a color.
I came across this on instagram today: https://www.instagram.com/cycles_victor/

1 of 50. It seems it's part of the Richard Mille/Alain Prost/Colnago collaboration that was announced last year, but now a C64.

It might be a bit sacrilegious but I think it's a very nice paint job spoilt by some watch mech graphics :P

So sell the watch, keep the bike? :mrgreen:
815k for an unknown brand of mech watch? A Patek Phillipe is by far a better investment at this pricing. I'd much prefer the bike!

Unknown watch brand? To you perhaps. It’s the same for the average Joe in world of bicycles who can’t see why some crazy guys in lycra would pay so much money for these unknown brands like Passoni, Parlee, Cyfac when you can have Trek, Specialized, Canyon for 1/2 the price...

While I find the paint job unusual and cool, I also think this collaboration with Alain Prost and Richard Mille quite naff... same with Bianchi/Ferrari and S-Works/McLaren

I've got to stop posting these unique colour schemes because as time goes on there going to be increasingly more common but they keep popping up on instagram and this is one beautiful bike....

Will this colour-way be made widely available? This is easily the best paint job on a colnago I've seen since the art decor c59s. I'd be tempted to buy one!

That’s a custom paint job (the red one), no? I also think they messed up a bit with the black fade on the fork. I don’t think that’s just shadow from the handlebars... there’s photos from different locations and it looks the same.

This is probably the nicest bike I have seen in - well forever actually. I don't like the art decor normally but that is simply stunning. Wouldn't be able to ride it though for fear of scratching it.

Can anyone get a custom painted Colnago? How does one comminicate what they want?

Can't you just pay any old frame painter to do it? - obviously a good one!

That red is lovely, but the fade on the fork leg isn't right. It looks like the masking went wrong and is too sudden. I'd also like to have seen a longer fade on the chainstays and also on the saddle end of the seatpost so the three points of exit balance...

No idea, it's custom done at the factory. There are previous examples of custom art decor and other C64's already in this thread. For example:

Same scheme, but old gold logos.

Standard art decor schemes are nice if that's you thing; BFBL and BFWH (example in post below).

I don't know but I'd start by asking a dealer. But be prepared to pay more for it, get on a waiting list, or be told no.

Shadow

Fade with out shadow

Which seems to match pretty consistently with the standard art decor

I'm not going to go to bat for Colnago's painters because I've seen suspect work before, but in this case I think they got it right. Or at least consistent with the standard art decor schemes.

And while everyone is drooling over this custom I'll bring it back down to earth with this sin on the non drive side :twisted:

I think it's a vinyl sticker, or hope :P
