OK - I have two, though both on "project" status.

This c.1980 Elswick is a bit more green than blue, so I'm calling it green.



and my late uncle's 1974 Superbe, which is also way too large for me, and is opportunistically getting upgraded with less crusty parts as I come across them.

Just realized I do have a green C&V bike, in fact a very special and rare, now thought to be mid-fifties Royal Nord President. After cleaning, I took some shots before I dismantled it for reconditioning. It's a Belgian 3speed roadster style bike with 28" x1 1/2" wheels. All the pinstriping and spear lines are hand painted. In a few weeks it should be ready to roll once again. It does have its own thread here Royal Nord President circa 1967

Well it's not quite midnight in the next time zone, so....

Not my nicest green bike, not by a longshot. But, it's my current daily driver, and may be a clunker entry. Mystery year Trek 730, found in the prairie planting off the bike path. Posted a CL "Found" ad, but no one replied.

Not abused, but very neglected. Nothing really missing. Needs a LOT of paintwork. Except for the yawn-inducing grip-shifters, it's a blast to ride now that it's tuned up. So far I have $5.00 in the rack, $3.00 in the saddle, $1.00 in each of the lights, $5.00 in the pedals/clips, $1.00 in the seat bag, so a shade under $20. Knock wood, the tires will last the required 100 km.

Here she is in a little more interesting habitat, but with a pocket P&S camera and cr@ppy lighting; I ended up putting her on the bus on account of the rain.


Here's the mystery. US-made lugged TT-OX frame. I think the bike is "ice green", but the last lugged ones must've been '91 or '92 (any idea, @JohnDThompson ?), and they didn't come in ice green until '95. I've seen other ice green 730s, but they're TIG welded. The cool thing is, they spec'ed this bike to have some road-ish manners - nearly straight flat handlebar with a System 1 90-degree stem.
