I started the thread stating that I don't have a red bike. Duh. Here is our Burley Zydeco tandem. The color has not managed to make us fast, but that's OK.



The musicians in the background didn't help, either.

Also, my first bike was red. I believe it was a Schwinn Pixie. My father wanted a Schwinn when he was a kid, so that's what he got me. The lessons he gave me on it are a sweet memory.

The only red one I have is the Miyata 1000 I picked up in December... (seller's picture) Miyata called it burgundy, but it looks more like Magenta to me...

And I did have a pink bike, too. It was a ~1975 Motobécane Le Champion. This isn't it. Mine was a ~58cm size which turned out to be a bit big for me.

Just have one red bike and it is my latest build added to the stable. 1965 Dilecta LeBlanc French touring bike. It is a red over silver paint with the red almost worn off in places giving it a pinkish hue.

Beautiful Fuso @merziac, unusual and striking pattern. The pink portion is close in shade to my Tommasini, very pretty looking. should build up sweet.

Thanx Bill,

unfortunately way too small for me, had to buy it just have one and hope it might bring me a bigger one somehow.
Same with the Bianchi, no way I would let either one of these go if I could ride them at all.
