Some very nice blue bikes here. I've posted these before...

Trek 710, 1982

This is a repaint and it no longer has the front rack or bags.

1986 Vitus

Mostly all Tri-Color.

I think this is a 1983 Nishiki Cervino.


and new to me this year NOS 1995-2000 RRB sourced Tange Champion 2 frame I'm building up.

May have posted this before but how about this two-fer? The Bruce Gordon is mine and the De Rosa is a fellow local rider. It’s a pretty nice bike with all the fancy crank elements!

Do we need another blue bike? Of course we do! (In any case, what's need got to do with it?)

Moderators, is it possible to add "For the month of May:" to the beginning of the thread title? We might catch more people if they know the thread is part of the monthly series. Thanks.

It's helpful on one of these requests if you type out the entire title as you want it to avoid multiple edit cycles.

@unterhausen, I just exposed myself as a programmer with a habit of using the fewest words possible. Not the best habit in many situations but you got it right this time. I'll bear in mind your tip. And thank you.

I'd go with "Brand Identification", but how about the rationale of the non-rebuildable Headshok!
