Somec Paint Info

“I don’t know much about their paint, but I’m pretty sure it was all in-house. They were definitely known for being one of the first and few companies to do all the pantographing of all the components that went on their bikes in-house, which was usually done by a 3rd party and not by the component nor the frame makers. So i’d guess they also did it themselves?
