Should be here soon after repair and repaint. An almost complete NOS 1989 build awaits, but I couldn't find an XT headset, don't like 1989-era grips much and won't pay the kind of money people are wanting for the pedals.

I love the color, what's the PPG number?

Cheers,

No idea Kirk, sorry! It was painted by Noah Rosen at Velocolour in Toronto and is based on a job in his gallery. I was thinking a rootbeer-y until I saw this restored Torpado.

Well whatever it is, I like it. May have to give Noah a call to find out.

In the mean time we need bigger / better pics of your bike.
