I can't afford to get my steel 853 Paconi repainted so decided to do it myself...a work in progress.

I like it very much. My girlfriend is doing something similar with two custom steel frames she's preparing for the new season but no doubt that will turn out completely different from your take on this. I love personalized bikes. Do keep us updated on your progress!
