Call me feminine..

Hey guys, i was wondering if you guys could suggest me some bike frames thats been finished with pink metallic / rose metallic / wine silver (fuji opus 3..drool.), BASICALLY PINK'ish..

fuji - https://classicfuji.com/OpusIII_1986_Page.htm

Ofcourse coming across the fuji opus 3 is unlikely loll so ive already accepted that..

If its just me, yeah then maybe im just weird, but i would love to have a bike of that color.

FYI i like girls ok . thanks guys.

Lotus had a few frames in a metallic pink. I had a Leger back in the late 80s that was the same color as this Legend:

My only really pink bike, an early seventies Mercier:



Later models came in metallic as well.

I've seen a few guys with pink bikes. In my eyes, it shows they're very assertive and completely comfortable about their sexuality. Guys who ride fixies tend to love that color. When you are with friends, just ride it like you stole it! Don't ride a pink bike if you easily blush if teased.

PS. I'm a guy who once in a while proudly rides a mixte.

+1! Riding pink means you're comfortable about yourself. Definitely check out the "Think Pink" thread. Here's mine:

Prior to WWII pink and black was a popular color for Hot Rods of the pre WWII era, so I think the pink=girl is realatively new thing.

Anyway I saw a 62cm pink Nashbar Alpha 500, the older Hellenic stay version for sale in Mass. a few months back

If you're going to pink it out, someone did most of the work for you already on this one.

it's the color of the winner's jersey in the Giro, like wearing the yellow jersey in the TdF...
aside from that factoid, I saw a nice Univega in pearl-pink on CL...can't snag the picture right now, but it were purdy.

Actually I looked thru the pics in that "Think Pink-bikes" thread and there's a Univega Gran Rally with the same paint...I used to see a Lotus parked in my 'hood (somebody's daily commute) that had some nice pink paint, too.
