I'm building up an early 70s Fuji Finest. I just finished up cleaning and waxing the frame before building the bike.

Thanks! I've been having fun with the build, https://www.bikeforums.net/classic-v...ld-thread.html

My garage turned into a sauna with the heat wave but things are cooling down. I'll wrap up the build this week.

I have owned only one blue bike, a pretty basic SR 10-speed that a neighbor gave me and which got stolen after I lent it to a kindly out-of-town visitor. She was distraught about the theft, but I reassured her that I had very little invested in it and not to worry. (The other bike I have lost to theft was my horrid yellow early 1970s Sears Free Spirit boat anchor.) So, no blue eye candy here.

Blue Linear Limo 3.0



Here’s my blue 2011 Linear 3.0 Limo. Not built for speed, but then again, neither am I anymore. The view is great with under seat steering.

Cramerotti used to race against Campagnolo in Italy. His son kept his bike manufacturing company alive.

Vitus 979 with the 'aero' seat and down tubes and 'aero' seat stays. The top tube, chain stays and fork are 'normal' Vitus items. I raced this bicycle in the early '80s. This picture appears 'odd' because the bicycle is hanging from the ceiling. It has Campy SR but the brakes are Modolo Kronos and the pedals are by Vittoria. The freewhell and chain were Regina 'Extra' (?). I still have the frame. It is pretty!

The title of the thread is "How about a little "Eye Candy"?...Show us your Blue Bikes!!" Not sure that stock pics count.
