Excited for you! Looks like it will be awesome! Personally, I really like the colors. I think it will be stunning and unique. It definitely won't look like all the matte black 'murdered out' bikes out there.

I think bikes should be fun and classy and have color.

Looking forward to seeing this build.

That paintjob looks seriously nice to me. Curious to see this when all done. I'd be excited with that.

And the stem is now being shown. It shows the colours more clearly.

As I look at the few pics of it, it is growing on me, especially the depth of paint that the clear coats gives to the fork.

The paint on the fork reminds me of a Josh Simpson "planet", something I really like. If it transfers to the frame it will be really nice.

The metallic really differentiates it from the other "typical" Speedvagen clear coated and matte finishes.

Second stem? I'm liking it more and more (from 'hmmm,' past 'ok,' to 'yes [head nodding with approval]') and I'm betting I'm going to 'wow' when we see the final build. The photo from Clean39T with the color palette helped me with the combination of colors. Eager to see it; you must be stoked!

Yes, second stem - a portion of my name is visible.

I am in the same boat in terms of how it is coming along and my expectations.

TVW has long loved the dark brown/sky blue contrast.

I think I'm liking those colors as well. Interestingly, the older I get the more open I am to a "surprise me" paint job. Maybe it's because I'm becoming less of a "controller"...I hope so. My wife hopes so as well. Many of done so in the past with Land Shark. Which of course is part of the whole LS "experience".

Can't wait to see.
