Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

In my case it is a beautiful lugged frame with down tube shifters. They are beautiful and have only the brake cables flapping in the wind.

Thanks.

It is a 2002 Fuji Roubaix. Here is how it used to look....



I had it powder coated, put an 11 speed 105 groupset on it, Shimano C24 wheels, FSA K-Wing bar, etc.

Mismatched colors -- say one "tie-dye" black and oh, say... green on the other side.
