Yes, it's a Colnago. Blue electrical tape was the only one I had left - will swap it out for white later, looks a bit cheesy now.
Chorus is how I roll.
White Industries hubs laced to Ambrosio Excellences. Supposed to do an all silver build (XR200-Bikelover --> shaving off -300g) but the spokes arrived a little late so those have to wait until spring.
Luckily the wheels play well with the frame.
Some more pics can be found here:
I used to race a C40HP in the same colours. Very fond memories - in fact probably my favorite bike ever.

What rack is that?
the rack is a modular thing bought from the local hardware chain, it's called "StoreEase", think it is an australia only product. works very well, is cheap and is easy to work with.

i am terrible at taking photos, but i'll give it a go wwhen we get a sunny day.
@erik$, that c40 is stunning
sun was shining!
my first carbon bike, there is nothing i don't like about it
this was my first colnago (ordered for myself the day i finished school)
this was posted a few pages back, but why not have them all together
Got a lot of inspiration from this thread - many beautifull bikes in here, and I really enjoy putting together a custom build. Hoping to be able to do a C50 some time in the future.
I'm a little split on the hoods myself but I like the overall look. The translucency stirs things up, I think.

unfortunately no chance of a -17, im pushing it as it is (i'm built like a girl, long ass legs, no torso, average arms).
i would accept your advice if i didn't completely disagree with it. ive had 1 puncture in 7500km on schwalbe tyres. but classic sidewalls would be bad ass.
