The previous owner had repainted the bike gray because he had liked the look of the bare titanium Litespeeds and wanted to emulate that (peep the handlebar tape). I think it looks sweet like that so it's a keeper, though I've replaced the handlebar tape for something that doesn't advertise a brand the bike isn't.

I've turned it into my light and fast touring/rando bike.
