No longer have this Klein Performance.



Or this monster that was found in the basement of a Raleigh NC shop and was purported to be a Bob Jackson. The Raleigh folks remembered back when the bike came to town in the '70s.



This one is still in the garage.

I'm not 100% certain this qualifies as yellow:

^^ most bold yellow I have seen on a bike! Might get around to fixing the fork. The right tang is bent ever so slightly...but it just ticked me off so much!

I had this Pearlized Yellow 1979 Centurion Semi Pro. I sold it to @RobbieTunes and I think @sloar also may have owned it.

This was one of my early acquisitions. I recall being pretty excited about it at the time.

Steel bike frame I built "Back in the Day". Raced it for several years, and converted to Campy 10 speed a few years ago

Here's mine, 1987 Schwinn Paramount. Serial #1 for the year. This has a Waterford repaint with some tasteful upgrading. I do have the repainted original steel fork also.



A respectable 19 lbs.

Tough to follow that Paramount but my yellow Olmo manages to show pretty well.
