"Little Boat" or "little sports car" in Italian, packaged as a utility bike in a good color with checkerboard embellishment. Call it what you will as long as it serves well.

Coalfield that’s a beautiful bike! Nice job!
May I ask what method you used to remove the damaged decal/transfer? It was not under clear coat was it? If anyone else has a method I’m interested. I have this issue on my Bertin and I don’t want to use a method that would remove paint (eg. rubbing compound) Thanks

It was not under clear coat and ~50% already gone.
Method of removal was mostly by fingernail.
There may have been a very small amount of gasoline or acetone involved.

The entire frameset's exposed paint got a light application of rubbing compound gently applied, before wax. Usually, chainstays need a little more work.
