Yeah, we've done this before...

And I've loved every Merckx, Crescent, Motobecane, Colnago, Holdsworth etc that showed up in that thread! So I want to see some more - and hopefully you do, too.

Taken today; for the first time I used the tried-and-true 'garage door' method for the pictures. Sorry it's not white...

Show us what you've got!







Enjoy.

How about just a little bit of orange?



I've been meaning to get this one out for some updated pictures with the fall foliage, but alas..I have been sick.

Don't have any orange, but I do have a deep, apple red Fuji, and a forest green Lenton that seem to fit fall foliage colors...I'll try to get some pics up tomorrow, but not on this page - I don't want to sully the beautiful bikes on here with my non-orange beaters!

I need to take a better photo of this thing sometime; preferably when I get some leather stitch wrap (anyone got some for trade?) for it:

You sure do - the Superior is my all-time favorite Schwinn, and it looks best in orange, too

I had this one pass through my hands many years ago. Too big for me, so I sold it (for way too little).

I'm hoping to be the proud owner of another orange bike soon. Fingers crossed, but for now some pics of my Razesa.

Early 60's Cinelli. I've left it pretty much as I bought it. Someone back in Italy put in a few miles on that handlebar tape.

Hey, that looks like a pretty early Nishiki - what timeframe are we talking here?

That's a damned fine looking bike!
