Got this beauty a few weeks back - after the head tube on my 2005 S works e5 started to crack (very sad times). Have to say though this rides like an absolute dream. And no one can see me coming with it being stealth and all.

    Where did you get the paintwork and graphics done?
    Looks brilliant! I have a silver R3 - would love it to look like this.

    Lovely build congrats

    Stealthy builds divide opinion but for me they never go out of style.

    Those red and yellow details make the bike, which would otherwise be terribly boring. Nice, I like it!

    Is this the new Chinarello?

    It's a nice looking bike but it is not what you're representing it as ... Why the R5 sticker?
    Life is unfair, kill yourself or get over it.

    I'd say that it's exactly what I'm representing it as - an R3 Painted as an R5Ca - ha

    But in all seriousness - I bought it with the paint job already done - I'm not quite sure why the previous owner felt the need to do it, but there we go. I think it looks ace anyway.

    Sopworth - it was done by a company called OOEY according to the sticker on the bb.
