I've seen a couple of other Serotta factory repaints done on older bikes with the split cable stops of the CSI, but never one with added internal routing.
I would love to read that review. Is there any chance that you have a scan or pic of it?

My CII was repainted in 1997 (or just after; it has the 25th anniversary decal under the clear coat) and split stops were added. I am not the original owner. I am assuming that since it is a 1991 it must have had the top internal routing and was changed over due to corrosion issues. I am pretty sure that even on a custom, spilt stops were not an option in 1991.

Life is too important to be taken seriously
