Guess What: Part 2

A frame arrived today.

Clues:

It's pretty
It's three colors
It's 31 years old
It's light

Guess away.

The colonoscopy I had in January came back with good pictures and no problems - which I considered pretty.

The Hetchins is last month's news. I'm still truing the wheels and need to wrap the handlebars on it.

Raleigh? Did you say Raleigh? Raleigh made a lot of different models. I did say three colors didn't I?

CV-6, You're not allowed to "guess" here. Neither is Dr.Deltron.

Reese Witherspoon is not British. Does that mean that you'll be sending her frame to my house? I need to prepare Patti for the houseguest...

Not British? She pretends rather well though, so no. If her frame does show up, it won't be getting passed on. You're safe.
