New to me: restored Seven Mudhoney

Unnecessary eBay purchase - Mudhoney with ugly paint job. I had it stripped and powder coated.

Here it is on the maiden voyage, where I sadly lost my Silca tool roll.

I like the color with the complimentary gold anodized parts.

What was the original color?

Shifting campy with those bars is ok? I feel like I would have a hell of a time reaching the thumb button.

I really like the frame color but personally not into the gold build, color of the frame is nice and should be what pops... but its not my bike. Who painted it?

Original color was alternating silver and bright red pointed panels. Some may like but I did not.

I intentionally picked a relatively subdued color that complimented the gold, but did not compete. Groody Bros. did a fine job painting the fork and powder coating the frame, especially for $225 (including shipping).

Shifting works great, and I've got small Trump-y hands.

I can see the motivation for refinishing, but either way that's a nice bike. Is it titanium or steel under there?

Cushy steel. It's like a boat on gravel.
