Since Fall is upon us, I figured I'd start off with a Fall color bike...a Schwinn Sports Tourer that's in my Stable. It's also a great Halloween color, and would look great next to my Cannondale Black Lightning.

The photos don't do this 1986 Stumpjumper justice. The candy orange powder coat really jumps out at you in sunlight.

That bike's no good. - It's got a 40 year old French dust-fleck in the paint.

rootboy- Moto-beautiful!

The detail 'M-logo soldiers head morph' shift lever stop reminds me of the 'W' in the this chainring when viewed at the bottom. (Although appealing, have had no luck getting them.)

@kehomer - great bike. What handlebars are those?


You all have some gorgeous orange rides. Occasionally I'll see an orange peugeot, usually Mixte, for sale but those darned cottered cranks scare me off.
