Most of you have seen 1959 and 1960 Capos

Repainted Cap Sieger frame, serial number very close to that of my other Sieger, so who was I to say no to it?


and 1988 Schwinn

I quess the 1982 Losa built Krapf bike fits in here with it's red, orange, yellow, and white paint. Oh and chrome....lot's of chrome.


I guess I need a current picture. After I found the red Krapf logo pump I added red QR skewers

Initial build

Lot's of Superbe parts with some Dura Ace sprinkled in

The jersey in the back came out of Ukraine and the other one I had custom made to match the beauty.

Then there's the more modern Kestrel 200 SCI. This too came to me as a nice frameset was built up modern with Ultegra 11 speed.

Let's keep the steel mountain bike theme going here. I'm not sure if this bike qualifies for multi coloured, when black is not a colour but it's not a solid colour.

Here's the 1994 or 1995 Trek 850 I picked up for my nephew as a college bike. Hopefully, it won't get stolen before July 2025 rolls around. Curbtender donated a lock, so there's a fair to middlin' chance it will survive.

This shouldn't qualify but what are you going to do about it!!!?
You can see the original color of a dark purple to the left of the sticker.


As a result of finding a replacement fork from 1985, the bike now is multi-colored in addition to the exposure of the original paint under the rattle can paint job.

I am thinking of sanding it down just enough to paint the whole thing black. Stealth bike.

Basso Ascot with Columbus MS tubing and Campy Chorus. A little too big for me, so I moved it along during the covid bike boom selling frenzy.

I posted pics in a C&V thread a couple of years ago when I built this Disney Bounding Minnie bike for my wife, but it certainly is multi-colored 😀 so it seems like a fit for this month’s theme. And it has C&V bones, having been built on an extra small 1999 Raleigh M55 frame.
