Peter,

That color, which I've always called "electric blue" is reproducable if one has the proper toner, an understanding of how it's done, and a good touch on the paint gun. I'm planning on painting my '70 Colnago that color as soon as the decals are available; which should be shortly with any luck. Most Colnago decals are already available, but the very early "playing card" set is still being printed.
