Show us your GOLD bikes!

As I was doing my once-weekly troll through this week's posts, I came across a photo of a Masi Gran Crit that had been converted to a fixie. Now, I'm not going down the SS/FG-hater road - I just had to admire the beauty of the gold with blue bands finish. Yum!

We don't see enough gold bikes on Bike Forums. That Masi inspired me to get my one and only gold bike out, take a picture of it (in the rain, even!) and get this post started.

Have at it; I'm already looking forward to seeing what other classic machinery is out there treated to the Midas touch.

Here's my contribution to the gold brigade. 1976 Alan which according to some ebay seller is worth $850.00 for the frame alone lol

Mine is a single-speeded unknown French frame. I had no ID info, nor the original fork, so this is what I made.

My favorite kind of gold is the kind that only comes around every 4 years and you wear it around your neck...
