Pink and red are in February, and yellow is in September. But don't wait to show us. Show us in your own thread about it or one about anything else. Or show it here. I don't have any rules here. I just start the threads, and they go wherever they go.

1981 Fuji S12-S LTD. It has a rattle can repaint and homemade decals, so I will be redoing it. It does ride nice, though.

Breezer Lightning, had since new. I have a few more black bikes, but they're not vintage

Just because I feel the need to participate, I will show my Trek 760 as I bought it with the NDS pic!

in contrast to all the other fine looking machines!

I posted this one some time ago, but here are a couple new photos from this past Autumn for those new to this thread;



My 1970s Pashley Roadster / Path Racer Conversion. NOT a Guv`Nor, unfortunately. This one was built with Pashley's custom butted hi-ten steel.



Here's a nice shot of the non-drive-side. The bike is single speed, and rides with that wonderful, relaxed-geometry glide on those big 38mm tires. I absolutely love this bike on flat terrain. But it can do climbs as well; you just have to push harder...

Here is my Competition GS 1977(first year for the GS) in black. I bought this in 2015 from the original owner. Sold to him in Cupertino, California 11/1977. Pretty much original, I changed the RD to Nuovo Record after the GS cage failed.

I ride this bike quite a bit and always get compliments on it. A lot of "I used to have a Raleigh back in the day". Some" I have never seen a Raleigh like that one"!

Nice black bikes...... something so classic about them (plus it hides chips and imperfections very nicely)! I think black might be my second favorite color, after orange...

I used to have a 1994 Fat Chance Yo Eddy in deep tuxedo black.... sadly stolen from a San Francisco back porch years ago...

Here's one I am working on this winter, a 1983 Lotus Legend:

Posted before, here is my 87? Specialized Sirrus, a $25 frame/fork passed on to me from a guy who collects vintage Mountain bikes. Painted with a brush just to see how color combo looked & did a frankenbuild from parts on hand. Paint is durable. Is a good ride as is, so haven't done a powder coat yet.

Not quite as nice as some of the previous pics, but this is the the only bike I've ever bought new... so I have a soft spot in my heart for this errands & camping knock-around rider.

I've had this 80 Super LeTour since 80, but I didn't buy it, my grandfather won it in a grocery store raffle, and he gave it to me so I've had this one since new too. The saddle has been changed to a Brooks now.

Add this to your quotes: “I was thumbing through photos and gasped when I saw this one. It looks EXACTLY like the GS I had. And wish I still did.”

This really brings back thoughts of the past, my oldest brother, his partner in crime had the white version of yours. He and my bro were speed demons, they moved on to Yamaha Seca and some other cafe racer.
