I've been on a huge kick, lately, and can't seem to get enough of this understated but elegant paint color, especially on vintage Raleighs. Post away!

Wow, love it. I guessing that Champagne may have different shades or mean different things to different people.

Perhaps a "Champagne" that has more of a brown or rose hue?

Champagne, gold - same thing (at least in my book)...



Nice Gastaldi, by the way!

Champagne is a pretty standard color for Masis. Here's one from '69 or '70 (the frame, that is; parts are pretty much period correct).

I asked the painter for a mix of champagne and copper, both classic 60's-70's Italian bicycle colors. Came out perfect and looks even better in the sun.

A handsome bike. I have tried a few times to secure on my size with those lugs. I would rather have a bike like this one than the "Ferretti Masi" on ebay currently.

Thanks, repechage. Having replaced a lot of the incorrect parts that were on it when I bought it, mine is an admittedly contrived example. I don't know what to make of the "Ferretti Masi" on eBay. I just know I would never bid on it.

More pics (before and after rehab) here: https://picasaweb.google.com/lerner.n...International#

That one's no longer part of the herd, sold as a frameset in the fall. I decided to keep my beat up and much ridden '71 International, also in champagne. A bit of a contrast:

Not so easy. I spent about a year and a half collecting parts. The brakes, which I added later, were a headache to find and accounted for about half of what I paid for the bike. They're an indulgence. The bike probably wouldn't have had them when new. I'm told they were still kind of scarce around '69/'70.

Having said that, my Special from around the same time as yours (mine maybe a touch earlier) had them, and I believe they were orginal to the bike. So a perfectly appropriate indulgence in my book.

Schwinn had a champagne paint in the mid 1980's. My brother had a Tempo of that color.
