I think this qualifies - tan but you could call it "chocolate milkshake brown" maybe? Panasonic Pro ATB

My very very rare 1975 Bill Philbrook touring frame (currently in build), fillet brazed construction with direct mounts for Mafac Racer brakes.

This is not the original colour, that was a horrible blue so I had it repainted in a 1975 Ford colour Arizona Gold. I'll post again when the build progresses further.

John.

Another example of a bike without a pedigree or great tubeset that just satisfies on rides.

Really nice bike; what size tire are you rocking on that 1000? They look pretty big.

Those are the Compass Bon Jon Pass... so 35.

I really dig them. I also have them on my 720.

It's funny you posted your 82 720... I was going to ask you to take some pix of your brake mounting... I'm putting a set of the 450s on my TX700... something just looks funky to me.

I must have had at least 150 bikes pass through my hands. I don't recall ever having a gold bike. I can remember having two brown bikes. Both were Raleighs and both were free. One had a bent fork so I stripped it for parts and the other was a women's 3 speed that I sold.

1973 or 74 LeJeune. Campagnolo Drop outs. 531 throughout. Carre details. 650b conversion with RAIDS. Mixed tires for winter slop: Panaracer Commuter in front, Hetre in back.

Doug Fattic repaired a minor issue with the non-drive side chain stay in July, straightened the frame, and made other adjustments. Great work, of course, but the real treat was hanging out with him for a couple of hours on my birthday. LeJeune currently serving as my commuter and family bike--attachment for tag-along on seatpost.
I'm planning a 1x10 build in the near future with a different rear wheel. Love these Ahearne + Map bars, btw.

There are some gorgeous bikes in this thread!
Thanks,

They lasted two short rides and off they came. They are like riding though molasses, uphill, fighting a brutal head wind. I don't know if it was the weight or the construction/rolling resistance, but it felt like I was dragging a Sherman Tank behind me. Coasting was more like rapid deceleration.

They were replaced with Compass tires.
