Miami Vice in Syndication -- Robbie, are you out there?

This is now the fourth Miami Vice Centurion that has been placed under my care. Afficionados will understand the obsession over these gold and fuschia bikes.

Robbie and I recently did a very successful and friendly frame trade, me up one size, him down one, and now have bikes that fit. For you, an exclusive on location photo spread.

Here it is, along with my larger model.

That's an ACE, Robert.

Thanks to you, it's great having one that fits.....The wheels needed a home.
Your turn, trekkiller....., and I know there's at least 10 more in this forum.

Robbie, it looks marvelous! What bar tape are you using? I used tape off of a previous incarnation, but need to order the Deda Bright Ocrhe Yellow, which seems to be falling in short supply. I'd like to find a washable yellow that worked. Cork yellow goes gray fast.

The new Bontrager Gel. I was in the same boat on the 58cm, had Bontrager cork and it faded fast.
Yours looks faster. I think you really nailed it with the 58cm. Jerseys would be cool.

It's uncanny how well those Vento decals blend with the frame color.

Sorry Robbie, I couldn't get through that video. Is that what you kids call music? It's just noise. Early Phil Collins on the other hand...

Oh, and the bikes are just lovely.

I sincerely apologize for getting this thread off topic and into music.

I distinctly remembered that photo of robtown's MV Ironman. It also looks fast just sitting still.
I know there are more. I've yet to see one done exactly in the OEM colors.

I've been to group rides where there were two Ironman bikes, even one with two of the Equipes.

It would be funtastic to go to a group ride and see 2 or 3 of these icons....

Not sure if you meant his ex on the show (Anette O'Toole) or Melanie Griffith.

The vacuuming scene in Working Girl is wrong on so many levels that i think it's brilliant.

I couldn't watch all the video either but... I guess it's possible that Sonny Crocket is the father of Doogie Howser. He may have slept with his ex wife Caroline Crockett and she got married to Mr. Howser while expecting. Strange huh.

I'm not sure. It is not clearly marked and came off of a '92 Giant CADEX. For some reason, I decided I preferred that look on this build as opposed to the stock Nitto.

Well, I never watched much Miami Vice to be honest, and I haven't seen that movie. I did like him with the Mahavishnu Orchestra though, and I liked what he did with Jeff Beck.
