It’s hard to believe but when this bike was donated it had a severely beat down blue paint job and some very mediocre parts. Since the frame was nice in a classic way it and structurally fine it was deemed to be a righteous candidate for repainting.  The aesthetic inspiration for the color and some of the parts was this famous Eddy Merckx.
