Here's a couple, sort of his and hers.

1978 Moto Grand touring and 1978 Merz touring.

Trust me these are green, albeit very light especially the Merz in the right light although the color is called "Taupe"

Early 90s Univega hybrid i used to make my first gravel bike. Way too small, but made it work.

The frame and fork made their way to another forum member after a couple seasons of riding.

Late to the party, but the green one is almost finished enough to ride, so i can participate in April Green Month.

Early 70s Zeus, built mostly with Zeus (mixed) components.

April is Free Bike Month

Listed on Northern NJ craigslist for nearly a month. I managed to connect with the generous owner and picked it up yesterday and it is now in MI. Super clean paint, a little rust on the front spokes, but still has nibs on the tires.

An excellent guest or utility hybrid.

Grandis (1971 or 2)


Raleigh SuperCourse (definitely a 1972)


Almost forgot my1988 Schwinn, it's green too



These are all very good bicycles. If you ever see one of these in your size at a decent price, do not hesitate. They are the real deal. Green or otherwise.

Green with envy

First bike is a ~1975 Alpine frame that I just sold and I'm in the process of packing. It's a 56cm time trial/criterium frame with 75° angles.

1965 Tigara

My all original 1971 Hetchins Italia

1979 Bertin Cyclotouriste

Next are my Bianchis: 1981 Campione del Mondo and 1990 Mondial.

Last are my rough stuff 700c butted Reynold 531 gravel cruncher and my touring bike. I built these frames in 1992.

Finished rebuild, trying something different this year.
One of my favorite frames, All-City Nature Boy Reynolds 853 and it happens to be green (well, most of it :-))

I haven't seen a Gitane Gran Tour since 1984 when I worked in a bike shop and we had one on the floor. I really wanted that bike but at the time it was out of my price range. Nice bike and it looks to be in excellent shape!

8" of snow so far and we are in the middle of a blizzard warning so I won't be seeing green for a while but here are the green bikes I have.

1984 Specialized Expedition. I bought the frame with a Tim Paterek paint job from my LBS back in the early 90's.



1985 Schwinn Cimarron.

When I first saw this thread I thought to myself that I don't have any green bikes. And here I am, posting my third one - Specialized AWOL in olive drab dark green:

I am pretty sure I have 4th one, as a frame, some sort of rigid MTB in green but need to look for it
