OK Mike. I didn't want to go first, and, you've all seen it before, but, here's my Halloween bike. Complete with a cobweb in one pic

I'll try to double check that ss. The paint's a little thick right there. Just picked up the bike a couple days ago. Sadly, it's about a foot too big for me.

Pic quality is lousy. But it is orange. And it's a RIH.

Hehe. Hope you don't mind I borrowed your pic, I haven't taken new ones since I got it.

It's great -- perfect for relaxed rides with the wife (she just got a Nashbar FB-1). I put some Shimano A-530's on it so that I can wear regular shoes if I want, and a set of Conti Gatorskins.

Here's an old pic of my 70's Gloria beater bike (only one in Philly), when I got it. Tires, brake levers, cables and seat replaced - everything else is original -> makes a decent commuter.

That's damn purty - you should post up a few more of that beauty. I particularly like the cream head tube and seat tube bands. Very nice!

^ Nice project, Zach! Are we going to see a dedicated thread (if so I'll subscribe)?

Looks like a '74 or '75.
