    You sure some 10-year-old didn't get after it with the dayglo poster paints?

    Welcome to the late '80s - the year of fluorescents...

    ...anyone remember the fluorescent Monogram 1:24th-scale kits produced during this era?

    There is a Bottecchia that I see fairly frequently that looks very similar.

    Master frame builder Brian Baylis had built this frameset... and even admitted to having painted the bike himself.
    It was a custom bike made for a customer back in the 1980s.

    This bike recently re-sold for over $3,500 on eBay.
    ~ No accounting for personal tastes.

    Like the... uh... "interesting" ? Day-Glo job which opened this thread, the paint would certainly be a theft deterrent.

    Thats it actually, only it was a 53cm!

    It doesn't look as appealing there for some reason, guess the purple is too light, those tires are hideous as well!

    That's right.

    On that note, I still wish I had picked up one of the Revell 767-200 kits when they were still around...

    Are you certain? This late '80s bike didn't seem to have a flashy paint job.



    So Kurt, were you building models in the late '80s? Was this before the bike wrenching bug bit you?

    For those who like the Pink Baylis bike, you'll really appreciate these suggestions someone had made for accessorizing it.

    I never got into the color fade, splash, blotch, and other looks. I generally like monochromatics, such as my charcoal Bianchi, or tasteful two- or three-tone, such as my Capos with their contrasting head tubes or my Team USA red-white-and-blue Schwinn.

    By my calculations, wasn't Kurt about 4 in the late 80's?

    I'm surprised that no one has mentioned (unless I missed it) that the pic the OP posted is of a Zunow. They were known for those, um, "agressive" paint schemes:

    http://www.classicrendezvous.com/Jap.../Zunow%201.htm

    Wouldn't mind owning a Zunow - very nice frames. Almost bought one at a swap meet earlier this year, but it was a little too small. Cool bottom brackets with the hummingbird logo cast in.

    Piccho,

    thanks for mentioning that, saves me from ranting about it. I'd love a hummingbird, in
    all it's florescent dayglo glory.
    and to be honest, that zunow isn't so loud
