This colour is my holy grail; it's been 4 (four!) times that I acquired a frame/bike meant to be painted in baby blue and then in the last minute something changed (even the Oberleutnant was bought as a baby blue project and look how that ended).
But one day...one day I'll get to it; and then I can only hope it would look as half as good as this one because then it would mean I have made a great bike.

But this...this is something else.
Superior sir, I tip my hat to you.

It's always been one of my favorite colors as well and I love the cream and copper accents with it. Thanks so much for taking the time to view the finished pics and for such an awesome comment [emoji1360] Glad you like her.

Thanks! One of my goals was to pay close attention to the little things as much as the big ones. Picking out each of the parts was crazy fun - almost as fun as the build itself.

Finally was able to really spend some time with the bikes in the finished thread. All I can say is WOW! There are some truly amazing builds this year. The vision, creativity, and quality of what I have seen is really awesome. I'm so glad to have been a part of BO11 this year[emoji1360] I raise a glass to everyone who took this journey - congratulations!
