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.



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.

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.

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.

Cycles Toussaint Velo-Routier

PX-10, and yup - WAY too small for me!

Neat Mercier that I sort of wish I still had around.

The one and only CF frame I've ever owned.

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.
