Color is over rated + paint scratches. Look at it this way, when it looks like crap from riding the hell out of it two years from now, there will be less material to strip when you send it to the powdercoater.

Pretty sure it's raw and not polished. I don't know him but that bike has been around the board for a while. I thought it showed what a raw build could look like. Yours does look a bit more tarnished and I think that's the thing with raw, they're all a bit different from frame to frame.

Stem length is preference and riding style. The shorter stem will make the bike more playful and easier to lift the front and get back behind the seat.

I will buy it from you for whatever you paid less the cost actually to prep and paint it. Shipped to MN.

That frame is hot. Build the f0cker up and ride it!

PS: If you do decide to coat it, use powdercoat and not wet paint.

this frame looks like it's polished not raw? or maybe the lighting/shooting angle of the photo makes it look this way?
The rear on that frame is polished. A lot of the ones coming from Competitive Cyclist are coming with polished rears and raw main frames. That being said just build it up, and beat the living daylights out of it.
