I wanted to build it into an S Works replica with a Lamborghini Gallardo orange paint job with gloss black forks and S Works decals on the down tubes. Colour Tech Custom Sprays was a name that was suggested. They’re based in Dartford.

It’s got a couple of problems with it which I’ll ask about later.

If your putting (probably) £500 into a paintjob would not be better of selling and buying a real S-Works :lol:

If it cost that much it’s staying in the loft!

Like the look of Kustomflow and Fat Creations.

It would be silly to spend more than the frame is currently worth on the 2nd hand market so I probably wouldn't want to spend more than a few hundred quid (certainly no more than £700). Fancy something like a metalic green or purple, maybe a two-tone fade, with some basic logo reproductions.


In which case, Argos Cycles - well worth a look. http://argoscycles.com/

I've not used them but I did have them recommended to me so got a quote should I feel the Colnago Master requires it.
Full respray and logo replacement £250. Can't remember if that included the chrome. A couple of years ago mind...
The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
I am not sure. You have no chance.
