Here's the Martelly built Ribble as it sits right now. I've got the Dura Ace 7400 Brifters, Brakes, and FD for it. Now just looking for a decent affordable crank. Then I'll be converted to all Dura Ace 7400.

Here's my 1st one, going to be more.

The Imron color id is "Taupe" but this one is a very cool light green, especially in the right light.

Do I get extra points for green house too?

1978 Jim Merz touring

Found this 1974 Fuji S10-S (Special Road Racer) on CL a couple of weeks ago for $100. A buddy in Michigan facilitated it for me and picked up the bike.
As I said in All Things FUJI, it looks like it's been ridden only in the house and only on Sundays. AND...it came with the original pump (not shown)!
Still looking for my first FUJI, a 1975 S10-S in blue, but I'm excited about this one for now as it doesn't look like much changed between years.
I hope to post more photos when "Show Your Bikes Starting With F" comes around.

My Brompton is the same color as the Upholstery on the Westminster British House of Commons Benches ..


Way Back I repainted my JC Higgins with black primer and used a Green translucent top coat ,
from a Candy apple green paint era, The result was black with a green patina .. circa 1957..

Dark green Visser Vainqueur I added to the stable last year. From Teun Visser's shop in Rotterdam. I suspect the frame was originally built by Eddy Martens for Diamant. Wonderfully 'springy' ride.

Green (and Purple) Duell Solo

My Dutch Duell Solo from (I think) 1980 or so ... I love this bike.



Though I do get tired of the "Barney" jokes...

My Rodriguez Racing frame. It is an enlarged copy of a 1980 Holdsworth that was a smidge too small for me. It is by a good margin the most comfortable bike I own.

Some green is greener than other greens, but this is what I’ve got in green.
