Here's hoping the paint on your green bike isn't as ratty as this one's.

My Bilenky tourer is going to get an update pretty soon.

Here's an older pic.

Full XT rebuild coming with an emphasis on loaded gravel road/bikepacking capability.

Should be fun and I'm sure this frameset can handle it.

It's beefy.

Salsa calls this "Fun Guy Green."

Fun bike for sure, but duplicated by my Monstercross and Yeti.

Game on.



This one's merely a "Clubman" 1949 edition.

Found at the curb on trash day in Wake Forest NC, and with a shop sticker from a DC store I had called on as a rep some years before.

Here's my green Super Course, as found in a back alley scrap pile, and resurrected and overspent on. My first bike build. I love this bike! I took it from spray paint pea soup green to Spruce Mica, Toyota's version of British Racing Green, skipping the original Raleigh emerald green along the way. Actually under the pea soup was Raleigh coffee copper color.
