But I don't have a garage. I have two barns (upstate).

I don't have one any more. I've had plenty of bikes and a handful of garage doors, so here's a combination from the past:

I'm hoping someone has one of the doors with a mural painted to look like there is an exotic car inside.

I have a garage door, but it's not particularly well-suited for bicycle photography.

So I tend to borrow someone else's door if I need a nice background in the right color:



One time I even went on a road trip looking for nice garage doors within riding distance:



My favorite garage door, however, I encountered on one of my travels in France: that of the Château Margaux, near Bordeaux:

This is an "after" photo. I painted it with Valspar to color-match our siding, using a Wagner sprayer.

I'm going to be the clueless one...what's with the flipped handlebars? more comfortable or an advantage? I like the red. Really nice.

“Planet Destroyer”. Not my door and not my bike, but that is me. A friend and I refurbished this old Raleigh Technium for his daughter. This mural was on a loading dock garage door that was attached to a vacant building across the street from my shop. There were several other cool murals on what turned out to be a phony tacked on facade. The building is now undergoing a complete restoration. The mural walls and garage door have recently been removed revealing the original handsome brick facade underneath.
It’s a great looking old industrial building, but still, I kind of miss the murals.

I don't recognize it but you're right, that's an amazing amount of work for a temporary screen! Nice work on the Technium too.

That's a "before" photo of the bike, so it was the previous owner's preference. He owned it since 1973 or 4 so I'm guessing it was a flexibility issue. The bike will need a lot of work once the weather warms up, but it has potential!

How about a couple taken from the inside? Reminds me of a Vapors song.



And one from the outside.

There was the time I purchased a garage door that was a really good deal...I didn't tell my husband that it wasn't exactly a traditional color. He came home to this.
