    You have to keep this one until Pogacar wins his next race.

    Also you need a different wall to go with this bike.

    My C60 after being stripped completely and repainted in custom "PLSL" colorway by Unlimited Colors. Very happy how it turned out!

    Nice. It now as a kind of "Alan" flair.

    That silver goes well with dark label Bora One's too.

    I got the idea of repaint after a small crash, which caused a big paint chip in the down tube. Then playing wigh Photoshop until I found out what I wanted to achieve... Matching with Boras was on mind too. I've got a set of 35 Ultras with tanwalls too, but the 50's with black tires just match so much better with colorway and the chunky tubing of C60. I like how my "PLSL" is just like an "official" Colnago scheme but one that has never existed.

    I stripped mine down to see what the interest would be like if I sold it. If it didn’t sell I was contemplating putting a clear coat over the matte blue Art Decor finish, only to find the FMBs - which were sold as 27c but measure 29mm on the rims - had worn a mark on the drive side chain stay (they clear normally, but it wasn’t as clear as I’d like; and they must have just made contact at the typical ‘tubular tyre valve wobble’ spot when out of the saddle or something). The cost of getting that patched then having the clear coat was becoming obscene in the short bit of research I did.

    Luckily I was made an offer that meant I wasn’t too far out of pocket Vs what I bought it for even despite being honest about the damage, so it is about to be packed and sent to its new home.

    I’ll look back fondly on my C64 - for a bike that didn’t dazzle me to start with, it grew on me a lot. Great bike.
