aluminum road frame for a local

 this guy has worked in the bicycle industry for a good number of years-long enough to know pretty much my beginnings as a builder here in Santa Cruz. He chose a paint scheme to echo the one on his Eddy Merckx frame that he has been riding or a long time. I wonder what he will think of the 7005 frame material.
The logos on the frame are painted on and are not decals. This four-color paint was done by local painter Allan Neymark. Allan has been painting bicycle frames since around 1979 so he is also one of the old guard.
 Here you can see how Allan lined up the stripes on the fork with the ones on the frame. he was justifiably proud of that aspect of the finished product.
