^ NICE - you've been holding out on us! I'd like to see more pics of that Super (I'm assuming its a late-70s model with the metallic-orange paint); it's beautiful. And the neon-orange on the Shark almost fried my eyes

Nice Pug, too - that looks all-original; is it?

Pretty little collection of orange bikes you've got there.

Definitely not C&V, here is my oldest son's Salsa La Cruz.

A fantastic "every-roader" for sure.

BTW Those orange Colnagos above are fantastic bicycles guys.

I definitely would love to own one someday.

Nice La Cruz, Grady - looks totally C&V from here (particularly with those tanwalls). Sweet

That Cinelli cleaned up nicely, Aaron

Always nice to see the Marnati make an appearance, too.

^ Beautiful, Lynn - why haven't we heard about this project yet? And is that the original finish?

That would look great with some Campy NR (perhaps some holes, too)

It's not a project. I have shared the completed bike so many times that I thought I would share a different photo. Maybe I should take some new shots...

But the holes are a nice idea.

Not sure if you would call it orange but it is my bike and I got it just recently. My bike..? Yes but, at 62cm, way to big for me. Anyone want to buy a Holdsworth full Reynolds 531 frame and fork, complete with a lovely Holdsworth headbadge. I am parting the bike out, today...

Thanks, part of a deal that involved High Fist Shin, cehowardGS, rccardr and eippo1 , about 4-5 months. It was chaos; travel, breakfast at a Mexican restaurant, cash, a Fuji Pro, a Raleigh R700, Ironman and Eddy Merckx frames were flying around like dust in the wind. But when the dust settled.... a las. Funny, but every time I ride it, someone wants to buy the wheels. At least no one's asked who Molteni was.

Hey, how long is the top tube on that beast? It looks fairly square from here, which is a good thing. Sorry, no orange bikes here, LOL. The closest I can get now is a Speed Yellow '97 C'dale, nearly fluorescent in the Speed-ishness of the yellow.
