1972 ItalVega Gran rally
Since I just about removed 30-40 % of the paint to get the rust off of this thing, it is about 50/50 silver and chrome! Joe

Here's newer pictures of the OPUS III. Hard color to really pin down but Fuji called in Wine Silver.

Every time I see @jamesdak as the most recent contributor to a "show me" thread I feel like I'm getting a present.

That Fuji is hot stuff!

My first and only Ti bike

Well, it is German. The Mars Exclusiv 3000. I was attracted to it because of the unique wheels, of course. They are made by Sachs and are very similar to the ones found on Puch mopeds of the same era.
Drum breaks. Torpedo 3 speed.
There is a sticker on the fender for the bike shop that sold it originally so I contacted them through facebook and they responded saying they remember selling it to someone in the states @1980.
It goes down the road very nicely and gets lots of comments....

That's about all I know.

There are not many to be found on-line. I did find this one but it's not silver or chrome ;-) https://www.flickr.com/photos/ayc107...n/photostream/

I've long lusted after a chrome bike. There was a chrome bike thread- and someone said an all chrome bike is too much chrome. I laugh.

Every time a chrome Paramount P15 comes up for sale- I'm scheming some way of coming up with the money...

I do have a black chrome Schwinn High Sierra-

This bike is long gone, and is...errr...an homage to C & V - but it is the right color, I always liked it, and I haven't gotten to post any pics in this sub-forum for a while

Looks like more than an homage to me, lugged, quill stem, cutouts, steel?, chrome, all good.

Why in the heck is it gone?
