red bike with red cable housings?

does anyone have pics of a red bike with red cable housings? i've searched, google, flickr, photobucket, search functions kind of suck.

also looked for the official red bike thread, but couldn't locate that either. why aren't the color threads in the 'sticky' clean up thread?

thanks in advance

Search for some LeJeunes the top model in the 70's was red with red, and they did not use Campagnolo on Campagnolo brakes. I think it looked really good, but the graphics were simple, white block letters.

If the red's not the same red, it will look mismatched. Guys don't always pick up on this. Saw an old "Home Improvement" re-run the other night: Tim, going through his wife's cluttered closet, held up a sheaf of belts and asked her why on earth she needed six red belts. She grabbed them from him and retorted, "Typical man. This is crimson, this is vermillion, this is ruby, [then three other colours I don't think I'd ever heard of.] What I need is a red belt!"

A contrasting colour like white, dark gray, silver, black, or even yellow I think would look more co-ordinated as well as make a nice accent. (The Jagwire yellow is more of a yellow-green which doesn't look good against red, so beware.)

Either white or black, +1 on the mismatched red potential.

OFG, beautiful build.
