Ok, I think I speak for everyone when I say... " more details needed, please "

Also... I think it's only fitting to mention in the "WHITE BIKE" month thread my favorite LBS (where I worked a LONG LONG time ago):

White's Bikes (Westminster, MD)

My daily driver. At least it was my daily driver before Covid hit... An Eddy Merckx before he got into frame building himself and simply sold his name rights to manufacturers. Found the frame in a dumpster and equipped it with parts from my parts bin.

1982ish Ron Cooper. It's been at least ten years since it looked like this, probably closer to 15. It is now the reverse of this photo: blue with white graphics, courtesy of Ed Litton. Oddly enough, the change in color did not affect how it rides one little bit.

Haven't ridden it all that much lately since the chainline is about 3mm off and it makes a lot of noise with a 1/8" cog and chain on a 3/32 chainring. Chainline issue should be solved here in the next couple of weeks and I'm hoping that it quiets down. It's a bit embarrassing to have a fixed gear make more noise than a geared bike
Did you ever solve it? I think 1/8" chains are louder than derailleur chains. I suppose it's because derailleur chains designed for flexibility (for shifting).

1970 Gitane Tour De France which I only managed to ride locally in the Fall after purchasing it, just enough to set it up after an overhaul so hopefully as the weather improves will finally take it out further afield.

I had a pair of 1960's era tubular wheels on hand and figured that the NOS 700C clincher wheel set that came with the bike would be worth close to what I paid for it, along with a few other components that were replaced since they would not allow for a comfortable ride due to older age. A very nicely preserved Gitane for free basically. Very fortunate to have been able to buy it and look after it. Not stock unfortunately but it feels more together with wider handlebars and lower gearing.

This is all I have in white. Barn find (from our own barn). Pulled it out after ten years and it cleaned up pretty well.

I've had this pile of hi-tensile, Delrin and mismatched wheels sitting around for a couple of years now. I should toss it in the dumpster but I'll get it one the road one day maybe. At any rate, it is white.

Am I the only one who sees these threads, takes a minute to think "Do I have any white bikes?", and then says, "Oh yeah, that one...and that one...and..."

The bike I posted on page 1 of this thread is yellow now, so I need to reestablish myself. As it happens, I am able to do that. In fact, I've acquired white bikes in four of the five years since this thread was started.

I don't know if there are any original parts on this bike. The fork has, of course, been replaced with a Tange fork when the original was recalled. The paint is original with lots of touch-ups.
