Is that like running out of integers?

I got this Falcon San Remo frame several years ago from the sale forum here, it was already powdercoated white and I decided to keep it that way. First is the way I had it setup a few years ago, then below how it looks today (different crankset on it now, but otherwise the same):

I'm looking forward to periwinkle-with-just-a-hint-of-chartreuse bike month.

But for now, here's my white-with-rust-highlights 1973 Nishiki Olympic.

https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8576/...c564e2b8_b.jpg

My winter project is to rebuild this as a 1x6 with a flat bar and a bunch of components I've collected over multiple cullings from the Box O' Crap. My stretch goal is to clean up the rust and touch up the paint. If I like the way it rides I might even get it powder coated and re-decaled.

I worked on this '86 Cannondale R400 a while ago - one of my first resale projects:

I probably should have kept this Super Sport, but it was a little too big:

And I DEFINITELY should have kept this 560ex. Got a bit of a profit selling it, but it wasn't worth it.

1984 Schwinn Supersport, original owner. Tim

This will be the least desirable bike in this thread, but I bought it brand new 21 years ago for $1200 and it's probably the best fitting ride I've ever had. 17lbs with a 6400 group.

Just finished. Not even sure why I built it.

Yep. It's also an absolute rocket, really fun to ride.

For some reason all my white bikes seem to be Raleighs.

I love it. I pull my kids on pedal trailers using this or my tandem nearly every day.
It's no where near as fancy as the bikes above, but it's mine. :)
Happy New Year!

At first I was thinking I really haven't had many white bikes. The only one that came to mind is the '66 Paramount out in the studio.

Then I got to scrolling through my Flickr albums and realized there've been a few that have come, and are now gone.

Long gone, my friend!

When I started this thread, I forgot I own a white bike!

1975 Viscount converted to fixed gear. It's fun for quick trips in the city, and it's lightweight.

Edit: I just noticed the long brake cables. I've shortened them since this picture was taken.
