Post your Pearl White bikes, please..

Can you guys post your Pearl White bikes, please? I'm looking for ideas on how to dress up my Rossin with half-chrome fork and chrome drive side chain stay..

Not sure what color saddle and bar tape to go with.. So far I'm thinking black, as white may be too, uhh white-y..

Thanks in advance!

Woohoo! I've got one, a Miyata 1400A. OK, it's not a Rossin, but I like it alot...

Anyway, I was thinking of changing it up abit with a white saddle, white bar tape and even white cables. Now that would be, uhh white-y! But I think it might look pretty good. I'll take opinions on that if you'd like to offer them!

Here's the only one I've done,I wish I could have captured the paint better because it was gorgeous.

This bike's base color is actually pearl white, although it can be hard to make out among all the accents of the Look La Vie Claire theme.

I was struck by this frame the other day. At least in pics it looks like the pearliest pearl around.

OK, I'll trade you my red bar tape for your white!

Cap your Rossin off with a white seat and I think it'll be a beauty. I'm thinking it was meant to be that way because you have white brake hoods and cables. The black decals will contrast nicely IMHO. I really want to do all white like that to my Miyata. Exactly like Kurts beautiful Raleigh above.

Minty looking!

Wow, look what I unearthed today:



This is my 1983 Supercorsa, as found, prior to restoration - she now wears metallic blue paint. This pic was taken around 2002, shortly after I acquired this for around $800. The only thing I replaced was the saddle and bar tape.

Rust, flaking chrome and some pretty large areas where paint was missing led me to the restoration. Anyway, it wasn't a "real" Cinelli

If you're referring to my Fuji Opus IV, thanks! DA7700 right down to the hubs. DA7400 seatpost and stem. Didn't have the stack height for a DA headset, so it got a Tange Levin

Pearl white hadn't been invented yet...



Somebody's gotta' bring down the average.

The bar tape and brake cable housings were these colors when it was new. Nah, it isn't too whitey.

I haven't had a chance yet to overhaul it, but I'm very pleased with the initial clean up and ride.

That's an interesting bike! I think I remember that you posted this before, but is that chrome fork original?

The bike/fork is original as can be seen in the catalog listing. The bike is an early attempt at aerodynamics. It is a very cool bike.
