Although hard to tell in this shot but the colour is that fusion between burnt orange and red wine that French bikes were painted. My Gitane has a similar colour with gold accents.

Oh and I don't think I've shown the second Giordana Xl Super in this tread.


My lightest fully built up bike right now at under 18 libs as in this picture.

This year's Clunker Challenge revelation, a 1988 Centurion LeMans that will probably always look a little ratty, but will hopefully get a matching wheelset and better bar tape soon!

I feel like two colors doesn't really qualify as multi.

I get the literal definition, but isn't almost every bike at least 2 colors? At least with decals or components.

Absolutely but that makes a 2 color paint bike 3,4,5 all together.

^^^^^^ They should have reversed the color split on the insides of the stays, to complete the visual illusion.
