I am a sucker for titanium and a sucker for properly painted Bianchi's. I know red was the original color but Celeste is better. I approve very much! Let's just hope you get some nice tan walls on it on plenty of good silver components to set it off right.

Interesting look with the raw stays vs the celest main triangle.
...or are the stays partly painted?...cant tell if there is slight paint on the chainstays or if thats a reflection of some sorts. Looks like overspray, but no painter would have that.
Anyways, raw stays looks neat.

Nice, I share the excitement!

Coincidentally, over the weekend I randomly found some Youtube videos where a guy or a couple of guys were painting an old Binachi frame, and they spent a lot of time analyzing the paint mix to get it as accurate as possible, which of course is tough given the changing shades of celeste over the years, modern vs. vintage paint formulas, clear coat or not, etc. They mixed their paint in glass jars with spoons! Overall quite interesting.

Nice...Paul is good stuff and Duraacé is a fine Italian groupset which will pair nicely with this.
