Thanks for all the compliments! I hope to get this built up soon but have been busy with work and other commitments. I plan to move over a Campy Chorus 11 groupset I have from another bike, and complement the frame with black components and Shamal Milles.

I originally wanted to do one of Dario's geometric schemes like Catch the Spider or Somebody. I think the stencils are available from Gita. Then, Matt Barkley (owner of Red Lantern Cycles in Menlo Park, CA) showed me a picture of the Black Magic Moots which convinced me that I didn't have to stick with an official Dario paint scheme. The final inspiration happened when I came upon a picture of this Zullo (another Italian builder known for his creative paint schemes), which Black Magic tweaked to make more Pegoretti-like:

I greatly respect Zullo and his paint.
That said, imo your Duende is just much better balanced and is smoother...really great proportions and placement.

Chorus 11 + Milles will be perfect.

So nice. Cool to know you can repaint a Peg worthy of the marque without the hassle of sending it to the man himself and waiting forever. Black Magic does some nice work, may have them paint a C40 restoration I'm contemplating.

That's an extremely sweet paintjob! Reminds me of Dutch AGU cycling shirts from the 1980's
