I remember (haven't taken them off in a long while) the tyres on the unridden bike above as having red and green stripes on the base-tape. Nautical?

I once bought my daughter a 90's RockHopper that was red with green decals. She hated it. I had to get it powder coated before she'd ride it. Sadly I don't have any pictures of it in it's original Christmas themed colors.

I don't have a green vintage bike, so I'm going to have to mix in my CX bike to be properly festive.

It's... it's... it's indescribably beautiful! It reminds me of the Fourth of July! Seriously this is awesome. I'd love to find colored bits like this for Cornelo, or a shop that could color them for me. Boy would they busy

I think this one will qualify for a Cino ride. 1986 Ritchey / Rocky Mountain.

You and me both, I think there might be a bunch of holdouts.

I have a line on a frame, its a bit small and if weren't soooo upside down, it would already be here.

Its a good deal but on these that means its still a bunch, then you still have to build the damn thing.

Merry Christmas

Red and Green over the years.


Campione belongs to a friend now.

Sold as I downsized

Just refurbished this but will sell in the spring. May see winter use right now.

Friend took it off a curb and messed up the rear. Sold off with damage explained to a collector

Regretfully passed on as I downsized, one of my smaller bikes

Never really gave this one a chance, sold during downsizing.

Totally refurbished and passed on to a new happy owner.

This beauty languished on sale for over a year. I finally nabbed it and it's a near mint, wonderful ride.

Regret passing this on too but the girl that got it was all grins. Hope she's still loving it.

This was sold off too, one of many Lemonds and a small 53 frame. Wonderful ride though.

For me, the two most memorable red and green bicycles have always been the Eddy Merckx models in 7-Eleven livery and the Steve Bauer Levante . I've never seen the latter in person and have to resort to the advertisment. I'm assuming they didn't sell well because few knew the Miche Primato group, let alone were willing to buy a Columbus SLX bicycle with the group.
