St Patrick’s Day - Show Your Green Bike!

It’s St Patrick’s Day but with all the crap going on, it sure doesn’t feel like it. I know we’ve done this before but cheer me up by posting your green bikes.

No rain outside for the first time in days and the sun actually dared to show its face. I sneaked out for a minute to take a pic...

With pleasure laddie.

The first two are very light "champagne" green and look very green in some light, these pics, not so much.

You'll have to take my word for it.

Bill, It's not a green bike but I hope this will get you through the day.

Today we are all Irish!
Now back to my corned beef and cabbage dinner.
Best, Ben

This is my 84 Letour Luxe. It has previously been known to have the worst paint job ever seen(mine, with a brush). It has since been sanded and rattle canned, also by me, and is somewhat better, but would not satisfy the ocd among us. It is being prepped for a June tour, if things have settled down by then.

the green is "grabber green" from an autoparts store I stripped frame to bare metal and rattlecanned it ~13 years ago.... due for a repaint/powder coat

I'm making Irish beef stew tonight. I marinated it in the fridge over night in guinness. No surprise here but it will have lots of potatoes and cabbage as well, . And I'll probably watch The Quiet Man tonight over dinner.

Two green bikes. The first is my Trek 950; the other is a kelly green Mercier 300 that I need to rebuild one of these days:

That's alright! They also forgot to dye the Chicago river green today. All of the local pubs are closed and as close to an Irish meal for me will be Reuben bites. Go figure!
I am thinking it will be some Tulamore Dew tonight. Smiles,and Happy St.Patrick's day, MH

Green-ish, in some lighting conditions
'91 Gary Fisher SuperCaliber, original owner.
Short of front tire (and fenders), back to original.



and one that was kinda neat, in a funky, shorty fender type of way....... but moved quickly to a more appreciative owner.
